1.  2009; Microsoft WORD (.doc) format:

2.  This was the original 2006 version in Adobe PDF (.pdf) format:

If you have strange fuel readouts ...maybe for empty, maybe for being full & top bars are not indicating ...and maybe if you have intermittent fuel problems ...or all of these MAY have dirty connections inside the connector that leads from the tank to the main wiring ...that plug/connector carries the fuel pump connection & the fuel gauge connection.  These items are fairly sensitive to minor connection corrosion.

12/30/2009:  Clear up how the .pdf version came about.
03/31/2010:  Change file name to eliminate the spaces.
10/20/2010:  Add Commentary note #1, and fix the Google Analytics code.
10/13/2012:  Add QR code, add language button, update Google Ad-Sense code; later the language button was removed due to scripting conflicts.
