    What good are those points to me? Not much, I'm just OCD. But I do get free coffee. I can't wait until I get enough points for free hookers and blackjack!
    I'd stop going to Race Track 7miles. They don't use gas treated with Top Tier Detergent like Shell, BP, and Texaco does. My wife's best friend is an executive administrator at their Atlanta headquarters and she tells me they purchase whole sale gas of the lowest caliber. Of course I suppose you could off set this by using a bottle of fuel treatment every month or so.

    My Mirage prefers bottom tier gas and it strongly dislikes any cleaners added to the fuel. I try to go right when the big trucks are filling the tanks and stir up all the sludge and crap. What doesn't kill my 3-Tapper only makes it stronger, I'm guessing that son-of-a-gun is up to 79 hp by now.

    I throw a handful of sand, salt and/or grass clipping in my tank once in a while just to keep it running like a top. What doesn't kill it makes it stronger?

    I always keep one of these handy just in case my Mirage needs a little extra to get me to my destination. Cars get thirsty too!
