"I hate front wheel drive, most torque must go to the rear"
Nothing. I do not run out of gas. And haven't since the mid-'80s, in spite
of covering about a million miles since that time.
You mean for when YOU run out of gas, or for when yoyu're scoming to the
rescue of SOMEONE ELSE who has run out of gas?
If the first: don't run out of gas in the first place.
If the second: put the can anywhere where it will be stable and secure.
Any auto parts store sells legal gas cans. Metal or plastic doesn't matter
so long as it's a legal can.
No stinking with the metal container. But I was hoping for a metal vs
plastic discussion here.
Anyhow, regarding my beater sedan, given that the rear seats are not
foldable what are my options for DIY firewall.
I'm thinking fireproofing the trunk facing side of the seat
hopefully improving sound deadening in the process.
When I was about 18 or so I went to the local pool hall and
spent several hours shooting pool.
My '64 GTO convertible was full when I got there. About 1/2
way home the car quit and tank gauge said empty. Someone got
about 15 gallons of gas for free that night.
I can image that. I used to turn a wrench and have always thought the
task must be a lot more difficult than years back. I have a 99 Monte
with 200K that still runs rather well. I'm intrigued what odd things
might start failing.
A buddys, 400K, S10 just needed a new PS pump pulley. Apparently,
pulling/installing this pully on several pumps over the years has
"wallowed" out the ID. LOL
They certainly last longer than years back....
