Angry Noooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

Today I did a very STOOPID thing! All week I've been testing a tank of gas that had an Acetone/GP7/Xylene/Toulene/MPZ mixture in it, and I was about a day or two away from figuring my results. Today I had some time to play with my Cavalier, so I decided to install an intake I recently picked up. Anywho, being the safe 'lil mechanic I am, I unhooked the battery to avoid any unwanted electrical mishaps...BUT I FORGOT TO WRITE DOWN MY MILEAGE INFO!!! DAYUM! DAYUM! DAYUM! ALL ERASED!! Oh well...guess I'll burn this tank up, throw in another mixture of "jungle juice," and start over. I wonder if it is against the law to flog yourself for stupidity?

HA! All was NOT lost. Turns out all I lost was the correct time on my clock! My car is smarter than I am. Testing is back on...

If you had you SG hooked it it will have a copy of the miles you've driven on that tank
