Yup, the older VW had a 21 gallon tank where mine is listed as 14.5. Lug what does yours hold?

How long is the car to be out? Since someone else is the Daily Driver for an extended period, a new 3.00 to ~5.00 gallon baseline for Cycle 2 has to be established within 42 days; otherwise, there would be a 5% penalty for a missing member if it's longer than that.

BTW, what kind of Van and how many miles? That's harsh...

The Commish
Its a ford windstar, she took a plane trip, came home 2 weeks later and started the van and that was it Kinda weird. It has like 170k on it.
Her local mechanic is going to get a junkyard motor and install it for her, all for only $1,300 sounds like a good deal to me.

Will keep you posted as to new developments.

That would have been nerve racking. Good driving, the list of people with a 1000 mile tank must be short!!

Bummer -- I know the 3.0L versions a few years back had some head gasket problems.

Numbers in on the saturn wagon.

9.711 Gallons

That isn't great mpg but it isn't horrible either.

Fill update week 6.

CO ZX2: Filled 8.499 gallons, 755.6 miles, 88.9 mpg, SG tank avg 42 mph.

Alternator off for about half the trips, carried a spare battery and changed for returns. First tank since transmission gear change.

I have used the night warming regimen described in V.1.0 religiously every night, all night for this whole tank. Moved the engine oil pan heater to the transmission and used both engine heaters and the insulation each night. It is getting warmer here but we still see 25-40 degree F. nights.

Still making aero tweaks, including a 3 inch extension to my air dam. It is now less than 2 inches off the ground but flexible. I live on a dirt road that gets pretty rough at times and haven't ripped it off yet.

GasMisers Team members: This is the final week of this cycle. All of you have the required fill for this cycle, but please report any additional fills to me in time to make a timely report. Fills must be made before midnight Sunday 5/20/07 to count. Go GasMisers5!!!
