Got my SG and other updates..

its been awhile.. I had some engine problems and replaced plugs, wires, fuel filter, and coil..






also painted the rear bumper.. took off my air damn.. added fog lights to the bumper.. I am going to try better driving habits with the SG, not with gardening supplies, lol.

I heard that. I kept looking down at first, but after awhile I just got used it (like the Echo/Scion center console too).

I just filled up the calibration tank and glad I did. It was more off than I thought (+12.2%!!! ) but I kind of knew something was wrong when the SG "fuel used" was beginning to stray far from the in-board fuel gauge. The tank was small but not that small. Still broke 40mpg so that's still something but I think getting stuck at a foreign/alien turn light (I had no idea it would take THAT long) didn't do me any favors.
