Autozone... the same friend was telling to buy from them. I just assumed online would be cheaper than retail, but lifetime warrany? And I get to keep my left nut?! Win/win!

Mine doesn't work half the time anyway--but it definitely doesn't work when the engine is off. Kind of annoying, because when I do get the odometer fixed, I'll have to immediately put the ignition back in the on position when coasting if I want to keep an accurate odo reading. But if the car only charges the battery while decelerating, then it won't be getting many chances to recharge! And that problem will be compounded by having the ignition in the on position while coasting, which drains more juice than having the ignition on accessories.

Yep, autozone. I know a guy who replaced the clutch on his '91 accord, got the 135 deal and says the quality is fantastic. THis guy runs a garage, so I trust his judgment. I know where to go when mine finally needs replacement.

I have a 60 amp fuse going to my 2 amps, and its never blown, so its not kicka$$, but it draws a fair amount off the battery. Iv EOC'ed with headlights, wipers and the stereo blasting, no problems yet, but it is summer...

Heater / ac / defrost fan. Check your fuse; mine is 25A!
Kicka** stereo, if you have one running.
Window defrost grid.

the only problem of eocing a vx is that the O2 sensor cools down and it then takes longer to get back into lean burn. So I don't bother, I just coast a lot and drive at low rpm.
I got a few tanks above 60mpg, i havent put them on the gaslog yet. But usually I get around 50-55mpg in the summer. That includes hauling the family (wife and baby), jars, bags of concrete, sawdust, thrift store stuff, etc.
