we all need love and affection

i was re-reading my warranty over the weekend and realized a there was a tiny hole.

under the parts that are covered in the "expanded electrical" section it says that the electronic fuel injection system is covered excluding clogged injectors. (this is the only place in the entire contract where it uses the word "excluding.")

hmm.

i've driven a fuel injected car 200k miles with no problems -- never even thought about the injectors. BUT if this is a potential weak link, i need to get on top of it.

a quick call to my brother was funnier than most (and none of them are ever bad). "you'd be surprised, but most stuff you can get in a bottle that actually claims to do stuff, does. reduce oil leaks. reduce transmission leaks. up your octane. whatever. so injector cleaner probably works."

it's right about here he starts laughing uncontrollably. "but my knowledge of cars stops right about at carburetion."

which is funny if you're a car guy. and a geek. and my brother.

which i'm not.

so i hung up the phone.

but i did go out and get a bottle of fuel injector cleaner and summarily threw it in my tank. i might have made a difference, but i don't care. i'm workin' it the only way i know how, and usually, that's good enough.

That's what George Bush said. Zing!
