Re: Fuel Prices-Highway Robbery morelike

also everyone should check and fix leaks especially fuel leaks 12mpg from a 1.5 diesel caused by leaking fuel pump and a sieve like fuel tank full of holes, i believe 300's can suffer from leaky fuel stuff i remember having to replace all the expansion tank hoses under the plastic trim.
