And they called me back. They fixed the volumetric unit on the Blue One pump so from now on 'I will get the correct amount'.
Except I won't go there any more now. Thanks for warning

Next time straight gas it will be. See it that makes a difference.

Selling 6 HX rims, 4 with Michelin LRR snow tires

Just a heads up, you can see these in the "For Sale" subforum here. I'm posting this here because I know that other dedicated Civic drivers are on this thread. Unfortunately my fuel-thrifty HX finally met its end, so I'm selling off the extra rims and tires I have.

http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...ows-27352.html

http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...2-a-27348.html, no tires

Price is negotiable and I will drive a bit to meet up with you if you're interested.

New fill... surprisingly high, and I'm watching winter bring most other cars down so suddenly I am moving up the lists again!

Bruce pic's car developed a major engine issue that he has so far not wanted to expend needed cash to fix. He drive an accord that he had on hand, I think.

Try recruiting. There are a lot of cars in the garage without teams.

That's a good idea I see some members out there with hondas that get pretty good MPG and are not in Team Honda... Like SpeedyCorky with his 2006 Insight or UltArc with his 2000.
