Update: self-healing clutch; 2nd best fill

I dunno what was wrong with it, but the clutch (which had been terrible to use), suddenly self-healed.



Monthly fill-up time!

61.4 MPG US on the latest tank, the 2nd best yet for this car.

That's 95% highway driving on secondary roads at or near the posted limit (80 km/h = 50 mph). In all kinds of winter weather, from frigid -20C to hovering around freezing, from windy to calm. Not terrible.

A CEL came on for EGR, though. Probably either a dirty valve or coked up EGR passages.
