I read that one. I was wondering if there was any correlation between the mpg guage not working and the 1222 code. I figured if it was vacum operated then it may be leaking and causing the engine to go lean and throwing the code. I know on a maf car a vacum leak will cause a lean condition. On a map sensor car, like a Honda, a vacum leak will make it run rich. I put a couple gallons of gas in it and it started back up fine. I'll check it tomorrow after work and see if a can of carb cleaner can find any vacum leaks.
