Tosh,congrats on the Caddy. There is a lot of help out there. Ruby is now in Buckeye,AZ. We winter here and 5/W up in the NW.  I should have been able to find more time by now, but the list on what to do next is still long. "She" just left Eugene late last year.

This is the same issue I have when I fill and then use the gas in the tank - the gauge never reads ore than half full. Based on what I've read on this thread it would seem like the…
