I just e-mailed you.
Put on new plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor this AM and got 50.8 mpg on a outing. Yesterday a dealer tried to buy it for $4K from me. He has about 10 customers that he is trying to sell these to, but can't find decebt ones. He saw the temp tag on it and knew that it was not from Indianapolis, where we were.
