Love the commercials.
I figured the gas milage shouldn't be that bad. I am honestly thinking there is a small fuel leak somewhere. Did you see the mention of the "air bubble" that occurs? Everytime you open the gas cap air comes rushing out. One time the license plat was rattling when the car was iding from the pressure of the gas cap. I figure air is coming in and gas is going out.
I have been getting 15 or so mpg.
Maybe I'll check out the Nest for him and see if I can get some ideas.
Thanks.

I can't even drive yet, so I've never had that happen before

Yeah, the 3rd rarest Eagle produced, the only ones rarer are the Turbo Diesel (only 5 made, only 1 known in existance today) and the Sundancer (convertible)

oh man, believe it or not I used to want one of those Eagles, I guess somewhere deep down inside maybe I still do. There'* a few of them around up here, I see a couple a month at least. Not too many of them in good shape mind you, but on the road just the same.

Well, if you think about it...the Eagle really wasn't a unique vehicle. AMC used the Spirit and Concord bodies. In the Kammbacks case....they brought back the Gremlin body (which the Spirit replaced). That was a very interesting move, them bringing back a dead body.
