Probably th rack bushings causing the "looseness" that your mechanic is talking about.

i just stepped down to 89 in my 93 due to price on the way to NEBF. I did not see any noticable change in gas mileage due to it, and the car runs fine. I also don't do a lot of spirited driving, so I am not taxing my car performance wise.

On a side note, I have a FE2 rack in the Red car.

Says you. I had to use a teaspoon to fill my tank the other day...


...ok so I lied.


The *highest* octane I can get around here is 91. Oh well.

As for the rack, I'm of the opinion to put 500 miles on it before testing any real differences, and even then, it may feel different simply because it'* new.

And where are the numbers Bill asked for, young man??
