It was $2.99/gal so not that bad at all really. I asked they guy in the store "how fresh" the ethanol free was and he just laughed... He said they sell more of that than anything else.

I wonder if there's any way to "test" it... see if it's "really" ethanol free as advertised.

Oh wow thanks guys! The "kits" are fairly cheap too...

Tell you what though, the car is running great on the fill-up of the non-ethanol. I don't see a need to test their product after all. I was thinking about it; they've been selling it for at least a few years that I know of, and with the hot rod shop right next door, somebody would have caught on by now if they weren't on the up and up.

Oh, and I fixed my speedometer yesterday! Super happy about that too as it was the ONLY thing that wasn't working on the instrument cluster.

Evidently the old man must not have plugged it back in all the way when he pulled the cluster out to change the light bulbs. I finally had the chance to remove the bazillion screws from the bezel and pull the cluster forward enough to get my hand behind it and push the cable back into the speedo gauge properly until it made the "thooock" sound.

Yay! I don't have to say "hey Siri, start the speedometer app" anymore

The speedometer app is actually useful as a tool to see how accurate the actual speedometer is. Of course there's a slight lag if my connection isn't a full 4-5 bars. The physical speedo is pretty much spot on!

So the car started giving me problems today again. Same kind of deal; had her running to warm up in the driveway, then she stalled and wouldn't start back up again. This time, I decided to check for spark while it was not starting... guess what, NO SPARK! I checked all the wires and tried again, still nothing.

So I hopped in the Civic and ran up and bought a new coil.... STILL NO SPARK! Damnit... I give up for today.. :/

Ed, do you know which ignition system is on there? A pic of the distributor and coil would tell me.
