I’m out of Texas, through New Mexico, and In Tucson today.

The car is doing ok. Last night it started having fuel starvation issues and wouldn’t go over 55mph on the flat, or about 45mph uphill. The problem is likely the bad location of the electric fuel pump which is mounted too high above the level of the fuel tank, a problem exacerbated when driving uphill - not my doing, previous owner of course did this. Trying to find a better location lower in the engine bay as a temporary solution (will be refurbing the mechanical pump in the future).

Otherwise the car has been doing great, and it’s been a pretty easy drive so far.

Guadeloupe mountains in west Texas.

You’ll never guess what I spotted driving up I-10 either...
