    Yeah, I went through most of it. Both evap valve worked fine and would activate with a scan tool. Vent wasn't plugged. I got to the point where the charcoal canister was the only thing left. It's someone else's problem now. Stupid Nissan.

    The gas gauge in my mirage is finicky. It's also a flat out liar! The first 100k miles it was fine, and i used one of the trip trackers to count miles every time I filled up. Hit 300 miles, then fuel up, no problem.

    Then something happened. I wasn't paying attention to the trip mileage, and the gas gauge still showed 1/3 full, and I ran out of gas. A couple weeks later it happened again, but was aided by an uphill stop right near the gas station. FAIL.

    I've got about 138k on the car now, and looking through my gas log I've hit 9 gallons several times ...

    9.234
    9.347
    9.064
    9.238
    9.187
    9.017

    Not the top fill up in the thread, but I'm consistent(ly bad).
    How's it running?
