Score!

the gauges on bonnies are FUCKED up.... the full side of your tank is displaying 2/3 of your tank, while the empty side is 1/3... try it

Really? I thought it was in quarters. Like 3/4 1/4 that kind of thing because I counted four segments and assumed it was in quarters.

sorry u misunderstood me...

the gauge shows 3/4 1/2 and 1/4 like u were talking, but the way the tanks are, they display the fuel wrong...

on my 95, i could drive 100 miles before the guage would even show anything...

so im saying, your gauge could show that you are at half tank, but you really only have about 1/3 of your gas

if i break 200 in my 90 ill have a heart attack

i regularly get 175-190 out of my tank and thats with being under 3500rpm on average
with like 1 or 2 trips to the redline from a red light 75% city 25% hwy

yes i know somethings wrong with it, its misfiring HARD at idle to the point where its died, the alignment is wayyyyyyyyy off because of the frame being bent like a sob (PSSSSTTTT RANDY *hint hint* find out if that frame is still there ;p)

(and no codes are stored all warning lights are off damn clueless obd system, if the engine even sneezed in my old mitsubishi the check engine light would come on)
