Hmmm... all I can say these is do the math at the next fill... If its the same or close to the same... Just say screw it and put the hammer down

I have had a hard time keeping my foot out of it too....

The gauge isn't completely linear, remember?

^ That thread just might help a bit. Be careful when straying away from links on that forum, Gen[M]ay isn't the safest at work/school The Auto[M]ay section should be okay.
