well i think i found a reason for my horrible gas mileage...
a fuel leak
which surmounted into a waterfall today as i watched my gas gauge fall
it sort of makes me wonder if i would have seen it at all with cloroplast in place...

Something tells me when you have large gas leaks you can smell them or figure it out. I mean, how often do you get a serious problem that coroplast would keep you from discovering for a prolonged period of time?

Yes because the same thing happen to me this week end. I had a split in the line at the fuel filter. I smelled the gas pulled over and the whole engine was soaked with gasoline. I was close to an auto parts store so figured I would change the fuel filter while I was at it. After removing half the engine componets to get to it and 3 hours later I was back on the road. So much for this tank.

I'm not obligated to do anything for anyone but myself, so suck it.

Anyway, I'm thinking about designing my belly pan to not drill any metal, but it's difficult!

oh wow...thats very dangerous...the fuel could easily ignite around the engine or exhaust....
i was lucky my leak was behind the exhaust close to the tank
i always had a fear about smokers on the highway and loose flicked butt...
but yesterday was horrible
