In So Cal the ethanol pumps actually have stickers on them that tell you what the minimum ethanol content is. There's a station within a mile from me but the sticker on their pumps state minimum 55% so you never know what you're going to get. There's a Propel station about 5 miles away and the sticker says minimum 72%. I usually see 82 to 83% on my gauge from Propel.

Nice, AZ and NV you never know so I just pay extra to get e85 or more. The exception is when I do go to Cali I will bring a few vp cans and buy at a station that will have close to e85.

Well this week, I get to play chicken with my newly wired up dash. I now have a percentage for fuel left instead of dots, so i'm wondering how low i let it go before i put 93 in. I may just be paranoid and fill up my VP tank with 93 and drive around until the car dies lol.


Edit: 2 dots is 1/8 ish so ill try filling up at 10%

Seat belt wasn't retracting so dealer replaced both buckle and tension, citing 'internal malfunction on both.'

Yes. Nissan has a separate warranty for seatbelts. 10 years, no mileage concern.

Washed the Mountain Lion guts off the front of MZ DAIZY. Working on the dashcam video...

Short story is I hit it on the rebound and the clear wrap did itís job.

Mine is way out of warranty then lol, of course the only problem with mine is it needs a deeper cleaning than I can give it to get that slipperiness of the seatbelt surface backÖ. Pretty sure the lady who owned the car before me wore a ton of makeup cause I know for sure it was ingrained in the steering wheel so just logical to conclude itís on the seatbelt as wellÖthat and just years of dirt and grime
