So, having had my last three cars catestrophically die on me:
83 ranger, owned from 92-97, former army vehicle (blown engine)
85 Grand am, owned from 99-00, former everyone drove it to hell and back (blown engine) (we gave it six months, but it gave us a year, not bad for $750)
95 ford escort wagon, owned from 00-03, bought from CarMax, mechanic says I got water in there somehow (drive through a swimming pool, maybe?) and blew a rod
I just bought a '99 Accord, 30k miles, decent price.
I’m a mileage nut, and read this online:
My old 90 lx got a high of 24 on the road. My new 99 LX got a high of 28 on
the road until I put magnets from Radio Shack, .99c ones, on the fuel line
and now I get up to 35MPG.
Is this true? I can just stick some of the craft magnets I have on the fuel line to get better mileage?
