Thanks, if the past two days are any indication, this discussion group alone
will be worth the price of Internet admission :)

Well as far as everything else is concerned, I haven't had much of a problem
get inexpensive parts (as long as I stay away from the dealer)

Most of the time I get the tank down well below the "E" mark (there's a gas
station down the street) so I'm routinely putting in 15+ gal. at a time.  I
just can't get myself to go put gas in every two hundred miles, so instead I
tend to go to the other extreme.

I had someone else mention the injectors, but I'm afraid to look.  I think
that's the one part I couldn't get cheaply, and I know I couldn't just
replace the faulty "one."
