I did this once before, but it makes complete sense. Maybe I missed something. When I did some high speed runs it was just a little bit cutting out. Not a lot, but it would stumble every once in a while. Like 3-4 times for a blip in 5 miles of WOT. I might not have noticed if I wasn't paying attention. Sometimes I magically fix stuff just by playing with it. (wiggling wires) Also, maybe I'm just breaking in this motor again after sitting for 21yrs? I keep adding a couple ozs. of Seafoam to every tank. Thanks for all the advice!

Filled up today: 60.3mpg.
