Hi everybody, sorry for such a delay! Installed new Bosch wires, cleaned up the icm, and air flow. First time out got lousy fuel mileage; second time out (by out I mean stint between refueling and driving), I got a fantastic 28mpg! Then the strangeness began! I filled the tank, drove about a mile home and parked the car. The next morning, because of bad weather, I drove my wife to work; as soon as we got a few blocks from home I noticed that the fuel gauge was off the full mark. The tank took 2 gals more than it should have taken; I drove 14 miles and consumed 3 gals of fuel. The engine ran great, plenty of power. My conclusion was that someone had stolen 2 gals of fuel during the night; I hate to entertain such an idea but there was no evidence of fuel leakage; I have a locking gas cap (I wonder how hard it is to get one open without breaking it? Master key maybe, lock pick?) The next fill-up produced 24mpg; the next one produced 13mpg. I have taken steps to secure my carport with a surveillance camera, but I am stilled nagged by the possibility that there must be another explanation for the loss of fuel.
Anybody have an idea? Should I make this a new thread?
