Because I only got 18.7 mpgs on my last tank. And after a long day of freeway driving today, it appears that this tank will be equally bad. It should be getting 22 miles per gallon, minimum, but it’s plummeted over the last year or so. Actually got 25 when I first bought it.

I guess I have to try to tinker with that carb again... Carburetors give me serious anxiety. They’re powered by black magic. Then there’s the vacuum leaks, worn suspension bushings. Who knows what else!

Here’s a picture of the dog right now, because she still leaks less than my pickup.

Also kinja mobile is now rotating my images 90 degrees instead of the usual upside-down.
