    All right, I won't worry too much that there's some weird vacuum leak or something (although as problems go, I guess getting 30+ mpg would be a pretty good one to have). I had that happen once before (drove 300 miles and only took 10.3 gallons) and when I told my buddy about it he thought I was violating the laws of physics somehow, LOL.

    Nice long interstate trips with minimum stops between fill ups are perfect for seeing maximum gas mileage.

    Just a mundane drive to work today, but rolled over the big 3-7. I cheated a little by taking a detour through an industrial park for the last 8/10 of a mile but I wasn't digging the prospect of trying to catch it while merging onto the highway. I could see some fireworks going off as I was going up the hill so it was a celebration all around

    With my cover plate off the fuel hoses I haven't yet been able to replicate the fuel fume issue. Air passes through the rollover valve, I tried the slosh test and there was some fluid by the pump but it wasn't gas, didn't smell or look like anything but water. Washer fluid? Weird.

    What, no pictures of fireworks and car? hehe.

    could be washer fluid..I think the line runs past that area..but wouldnt think it would be in any real amount. (of course my washer bottle has been dry since prolly the late 90's...but I got a cap for it now so i might see if it needs cleaning out and see if it actually works)
