they are not leaking

ran with a guage for months, it was dead on spec

and key indicator, 10k miles and the spark plugs look perfect, light tan 
color and gap was still correct not a drop of carbon build up, (should 
have used borescope to check while plugs were out but batteries were dead)

now this is a new idea and maybe just maybe has something to do with it. 
I did have to change tires a couple years ago from 205-14 to stock 185-14 
because the 205s were no longer avaliable and I did replace the speedo 
cable about the time this started.   hmmmm  I had not even considered 
this, maybe I was always getting crappy fuel mileage. (I did take into 
consideration the tire size swap though)

thanks
