I experienced the same lousy fuel economy and rotten egg smell as will as an intermittent CEL.

I'd get a stock one asap. I don't think you need to wait for a Samco, as the
stock one is not very prone to failure, at least AFAIK.

Prior to replacing mine, I was getting LOW teen MPGs...averaged about 15mpg.
Terrible! Put the new hose on, and it's back to, what I recall, being normal
about 18-20mpg.

BIG difference, and much easier on the wallet.
