Nope, mostly Mini every day driver, there's never been a better car for the snow, its just squats and goes the Jeep off and on just about somewhere wether I drive it or my wife. And the Vette well that only sees summer driving it only has 13,000 orig. miles

My 98 tj has 120,000 and just goes when ever I ask. I bought my Cooper with 7,000 in the summer of 08, it now has 63,000 plus my commute is 112 miles round trip over mountain passes everyday. And the Vette, well it just doesn't get alot of time outdoors like I said only in the summer and its never been driven in the rain. And there aren't enough gas station between work and home, with a bord 454. I might get 6 mile a gallon if that. But I will say 35 on a 98 is impressive. Is it an everyday, or just a weekender?

Thats great, you will have alot of fun with it. You should take a trip out west, the trails are amazing. I never do the extreme, just the casual day or two trips but theres plenty to get your heart rate up. Summer in the mountains 72 to 85 degrees and no humidity. You can't beat it.

Utah, is beautiful but damn HOT in the summer, I usually try to go in fall or early spring to get some winter relief. We were there a couple of years ago in early April and it was near 100 degrees. That the reason I left Texas 12 years ago to get out of the heat. We live at 9'500 ft. so winter can be LOOOOOOONNNNNGGGGGG!

If that's the case, then there must be something seriously wrong with the computer. Both times I've put $20 in gas in it after it happened, and then the gauge read 1/2 tank.
maybe a bad sending unit?

I don't think so. I think it's more a case of having significantly less gas in the morning than the night before. On the way home last night, I asked a neighbor a street over who drives a Jeep as well and they had gas stolen around the same time.

The locking mechanism started to go. When it was taking me and the attendant 5 mins to get the damn thing off, I did the smart thing and bought the $10 generic non-locking cap from Autozone.

3 months later and all it is well.
My point!

I pumped gas in high school. I would have to chisel those damn things off at a rate of 1 per week in winter months. Keys breaking, locks seizing, etc...

I hated them.

I have the Mopar locking gas cap but it won't lock anymore. It screws on just fine but doesn't lock. The Jeep only has 48k. I wondering if it's worth buying the Mopar factory locking gas cap again. I used to use Stant caps on my other vehicles.
