off topic is more fun...

explain how my dad got 18.2 gallons in my tank one time?? He called me to ask the tank size right after that. Then he goes "that would explain the stumbling around corners" ...almost glad it doesn't have brakes so he can't do that anymore.

Most cars have a reserve some one gallon some less. My 93 se was a 15gal (I checked the book) and I would often put 15.3 gal in it I know I should not have let it get that low, also I ran out of gas once because the guage just started touching the yellow I believe I put 15.4 gal in it after putting just under a 1/2gal in it.
