But the honest truth is that i have the only 79 dodge st regis that still runs
but i know people with bonnevilles.
I use to own a dodge st regis. I drove that car into the ground and when everything started going wrong with it I then took it straight to the dealership and traded it in. That car was a good car.

I used to drive a 1978 Dodge Diplomat with a 360. It was none-other-than daffodil yellow. I did have some damn good times with it. Luckily it is still available for me to buy when I want. I should probably do so before it starts to rust (Arizona car until 4 years ago and was well taken care of.

That car actually wasn't too bad for mpg. I remember on a good trip I could get 17-18 mpg. Not too shabby for a 360 (luckily it was only a 2-barrel, but I switched out to a Holley 4-barrel).

UPDATE: i squeezed 2 more miles out of the tank, on the way to the gas station

so when there to fill up today, i put in 93 premium, and my tank was below the E.

i was figuring it should cost about thirty dollars for my 18 gallon tank

IT WAS ONLY $24, i could only shove in 12-13 gallons, whats up with that, it was starting to overflow, and my gas gauge says full.

is there a chance that when my tank says past empty, thats its really only about 1/4 full?[/i]

BTW w/o a SC, I use 89. Seems to get better milage w/ mid grade than the premium, but maybe I just want it to be that way, w/ prices as they are! lol

Yeah, 92-95'* have some quirky sending unit'*. My 1994 is the same way. At least it'* nice to see it go to full on 13 gallons when it was reading empty -better than reading 1/4 guage while you're parked alongside the road, thumb up, and wondering why the car just stalled on you.
