I will report again when it hits the low fuel warning and compare what that to what it used to be as well at the MTE on the next fill up.

No need to pay $175 - just buy a $3.50 Scripto Lighter and zap your old strip back to life.
I seem to remember reading a thread in which someone posted about zapping the things into working order with the right amount of electricity but it sounded complex. A lighter? Really?
