Well, with my massive forarms it just can't be done Thats why I have to get on top.

Hmm...MOS, do you have a local delco dealer besides the stealership? Mine was only $52 out the door at my local delco store.

What difference does being on top or side have to do with your forearms? You'd still need to reach down.

It did for me...

I check my MPG'* after the new sensor, let the tank run down and filled up all the way... I managed 23 MPG after the new sensor, in town...

The 91 Managed 20mpg in town, with lots of stop and go, on and off cycles..

Try running a bottle of Fuel system formula like Dura Lube fuel system Treatment or Slick 50 fuel system treatment through the car... Might help clean things up a hair... I think your car would be a good test bed for this... The Fuel system treatment should be $8-$10 a bottle... Pour the bottle in directly before you pump the gas to get it mixed in the tank...
