Ok - here are 2 more questions.

1. I filled up the gas tank (for the first time) and noticed that after the gas filler "clicked-off" and I drove away, the car was only on 3/4 full. Anyone else notice this phenomenon? I do not live in an area that has the vacumn-reclimation system on the pumps. I was down to "12 miles left" at approx 17mpg (all per the computer).

2. When I was out filling the car my wife noticed "tan-blobs" where the car had been parked. Is this the material the car was packed in for shipping finally melting off? I've had the car for over a month now and have under 500 miles on it.

RE: Q2

Yeup, cosmoline. Oddly I never had this stuff drip off my car like most everyone else! Guess they did a good job of cleaning my car?
