Neil,

Please start using proper sentence structures - the reasons why you need to are listed here. http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=73691

Regardless whether if you don't know how to spell, type, or if English is your 2nd language - you need to break up your posts into separate sentences. Thank you.

Thinking about your lost key made me wonder what I would do if I lost mine, so I looked into it. My wheel locks were made by Amcor Wheel Locks of Livonia, MI. If yours are the same brand, you may be able to get replacements at a local GM dealership. I am lucky that my local dealership has them in stock. Here is a link to the Amcor site:
http://www.amcorlocks.com/default.htm
They show to be $15 for the key and $10 for each lug nut.
If you can get the car to Cleveland Heights, Motor Cars Pontiac at 2953 Mayfield is a dealer there that the website shows to have key sets available for determining the correct parts to order. The website lists their phone # as (216) 932-2400. That should only be about ten or twelve miles away from you.
So here is the thing, if they have the sets of keys there to be able to figure out which ones you need, maybe they can take off the security lug nuts for you so you don't have to worry about them any more. It seems like it would be worth a phone call to find out.

I'm glad you found your key. That'* one less headache.
It is difficult to determine an accurate mileage figure unless you fill the tank. drive the car and fill the tank again to check how many miles were driven relative to how much fuel was used. Or you could keep track of how much fuel you use at each visit to the gas station and the total # of miles driven and then get closer to an average mpg figure over time.
The fuel gauge in my car isn't especially accurate, and from reading other'* posts on the Bonneville Club, I believe all the cars of this era are the same. The tank is half full when the needle is almost to the three quarter mark on the gauge, and there is still fuel in the tank when the needle touches the empty mark. So if you are figuring your mileage based on having nine gallons in the tank when the gas gauge needle points straight up, and burning nine gallons when it gets down to "E" then you are getting an inaccurate mileage figure.
