smells really sweet.. I've always wonderd why I never seem to get very good
gas mileage (11.5 average half in town half highway). I've already had to

Also sometimes on start it turns over and acts like it fires but isn't
enough to start the engine and it kinda sputters and dies.. and you have to
do it again.
I've always thought I need to replace the ignition coil and ICM but have
never done it.. always thought that that may be the problem.. but now I'm

but plugs, wires, cap, rotor are all less then a year old..
I'm using the Champion (i think?) platitium plugs and I had a friend of mine

crap and he got bad mileage.. Am I maybe not running a hot enough spark to
burn all the fuel??
I've put a new wix fuel filter on recently (last 6mons) so that should be
I'd like to know what I should start looking at..
