    From my understanding, on SEFI models the smog pumps also works as a vacuum pump. Maybe it's causing a vacuum leak when it's not running? (Purely speculation, I don't know how it'd operate)

    Fuel atomizes poorly in a cold engine, that's why adding more fuel keeps it running better. Fuel injection doesn't need a choke as much since injectors atomize fuel way better to begin with.

    If I were to do all highway in this I'd get 25+ mpg. The traffic on my commute really kills the chances for best mpg. The 2.56 rear really does wonders for fuel mileage, that and a suitably powerful...
