while my mom, daughter and some cousins were goin to S.C. to see my cousins boy graduate from Marine Corp basic.....anyway, $780.00 it cost, prolly would have ran me all of $300.00...I was very depressed till I thought hey, its got 176000 miles on it, at roughly 14 miles to the gallon that means it pumped app. 12,571 gallons of gas thru it...at 780.00 thats about $16.00 a gallon it cost to replace....thats a little easier to swallow...all in how you look at it...L...oh well, life goes on...:-)
Look in the shadows, behind the light...thats where the cool things are.

That's a lot of miles to have gotten out of a fuel pump.

Maybe a new record.

Congrats, Jim
