I totally agree with you on that....and I should but is it possible for me to do so, not really. Unfortunately its very expensive to go to school nowadays. and due to how little classes are offered at any one school in my area I need I am driving everywhere. So i am forced to stretch my tank frequently...

thanks for that info though. So is that what is causing the sluggishness at around lets say 50-60 miles of tank left?
