Just wanted to say Hello
I recently sold my 97 Mercury Mountianeer, basically a V8 all wheel drive Ford Explorer.
I Never broke 15 mpg on my 35 mile one way commute.
I replaced it with a cranky old 84 Ford F250 with the diesel, and a 87 VW Golf 8 Valve 4 door.
I am able to average 35 mpg with the VW. I hope to be able to break 40 with driving habits, a block heater, and repairing a small fuel leak that the car currently has.
I look forward to sharing any info I can as well as learning as I read more and more from these boards.
Thanks for the great site
Thanks for the reply
The fuel leak is in the fuel pump housing. A small plastic tank next to the fuel tank that holds the high pressure fuel pump. It is fed by a lower pressure pump from the fuel tank. It is also not uncommon to leak on these cars.
I ordered a new one even though I have heard of mixed success with epoxy.
Good luck with the hunt for a CRX sounds interesting.
