Wait, so you don't have to find out at 70 mph on the interstate with your newly cracked windshield? Where can I get one of those??

The problem is, if the hood is sitting down (not latched), it won't light up unless it comes up quite a bit. Past the point where it'll hit the window.

1. a/c is wack

2. from what i learned in class you're not even suppose to fill it all the way up to avoid overfill in your charcoal canister....but i don't know if our cars have them so who knows

3. I have, i say it works. But i don't see it really because i just love the sound of my exhaust a little to much

4. i can't really help you on that one. i know when my car is in motion and i open the door the lights don't come on but thats it.

Oh sorry I should say I got this one fixed.... Turned out to be the trunk lid.

oooooooooooooh yeah our cars have something all right...ask me how I know...Because this damn emissions light is driving me nuts and I do top off. It's been going off and coming back going off and coming back. I think it's cause our charcoal canister has something to do with it.

Anything over 45, the windows down will suffer your mpg.

Mine too, "tops off" at like 11.3 gallons. I also usually fill up when there are like 40 miles left on the tank. But the last 50 miles are the least accurate and there probably is the remainder of that fuel in the tank
