I don't think a leak coming from the air box would be considered a vacuum leak. A leak in that area means just less air going into the fuel mixture. I wonder if that dumb mpg gauge works off a vacuum, like in the older cars. If I decide to get it fix, I will probably give the job to the stealership since I have a good relationship with the SA. He charges high, gives me a discount thinking I got a good deal.
