Well, this tank, despite a lot of stop and go on my morning commutes finally got over 38, 38.85mpg to be exact. I'd call that a solid tank and it brings my lifetime average (since joining the site) back over 38mpg, which is really what got my panties in a wad.

As for the kill switch, I tried putting a crankshaft sensor kill switch in, but it doesn't work (almost stalls it, but not quite). I had to pay $10 for three days to access the Acura manual to get the wiring diagram and I'm not exactly eager to pay again to get the fuel injection diagram. Besides, the SGII goes off for longer on restart than on shut down, so I don't see it completely fixing the problem, only fixing half of it.
