    [QUOTE=WarStryker13;1473313] I get about 25 miles for each 1/16th mark on the fuel gauge...
    QUOTE]

    I have found the fuel gauge unrealistic. Seems like the first "gauge" 1/2 tank is closer to 5/8ths. I reset trip meter at every fill and have never matched actual mileage from first 1/2 to second 1/2 tank. I can get over 200 from first, 150 or less from second.
    not what it looks like

    Yesterday we replaced the hood and trunk lid with ones I picked up from the local u pull. Brought the 98 silvermist metallic GTP home last night. Took it in to have a keyless entry/remote start system installed. Once installation was complete, picked the car up and parked it back at work. I've got the replacement front bumper cover. All the replacement parts are from a 01 galaxy silver metallic GT. There is a little color and flake difference but I'm ok with it.

    I could have sworn it was 15 gallons... but either way I'm getting much better mileage than before.

    I've noticed that too, I'm guessing it's because the pivot point for the float isn't exactly at the 1/2 tank level.

    Oops, I did it again.

    03 limited with 149k and no rust. Fixing all the knickknacks and then I have 1.9 roller rockers, intercooler, prj's, and a 3.2 press on pulley that I'll throw on and send it.

    This makes what, 8 grand prix's now? Plus countless Buicks and Olds cars. I have a 3800 problem.

    Just saw some one took the hood off my old car at the you pull. Mine was a 01 SE though. That would be a ridiculous coincidence.

    How the heck did you pull that off?

    463.6 miles = 746.09 km. The best I've ever gotten was 367 miles/590km, and I had to drive like a granny to make that happen. LOL

    My buddy had his '01 GTP sold out from under him by his G'ma. She sold it for $100. Ouch. All it needed was to put a window back on its track, a new window motor and either a TPS or IAC. It was in pretty good condition.

    Changed out my 4 year old rotors a couple ago for the 06+imp calipers/rotors.
    I thought it was going to be a btch with the brackets because I used red loctite.

    Turns out I used anti-seize. Apparently I didn't use the pussie setting on my ratchets.
    I used red this time.

    I used red after my first caliper bracket bolt came out. I never had another problem after that.
