I am new in here and new to the world of corvette's, so please forgive
my ignorance if I ask what may be common knowledge for most
concerning vette's, until I get a little better educated.
Just picked my vette up Thursday and made the 7 hour road trip home.
It is a 94 in very nice condition with only 56K miles. After driving
for the last two days, I noticed a few things things that have me
asking the stupid questions.
1. Fuel gauge and fuel tank. I drove 285 miles on the way home before
I stopped to put gas in and the fuel gauge was reading just under 3/4.
When I stopped to fill it up, it only took 12 gallons, which was
accurate after figuring mileage and checking it against the computer
which was averaging 24 mpg. I know the mileage was correct, but I dont
think the tank is that big to reflect the fuel gauge readout. Do these
gauges get stuck at all in one position not allowing it to fall beyond
a certain point, or is my tank bigger than I think...I was thinking it
was 18 or 20 gal. ?
2. Stereo antenna...is it suppose to go up automatically whenever you
turn the radio or key on, or is there a switch to make it go up and
down? Mine doesnt appear to go up or down, so this may need repaired
if there's not a separate switch.
3. Adjustable ride control...how do you know if this is working?
4. What size is the spare rim and tire that came with the car? I think
mine is missing and I would like to get another one to replace it.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
