I started up the 78 Elk again today and it ran great. The fuel gauge was messing with me again. When I first started it,the gauge showed a 1/2 tank. When it warmed up the gauge went up to 3/4 tank.

I started up the 78 Elk again today and it ran great. The fuel gauge read just above a half tank. The temperature gauge read 220* but I checked the temperature at the radiator it was only 190*.

I started up the 78 Elk again today and it ran great. The fuel gauge reads less than half a tank. I'm working with people with disabilities,so haven't been able to get it on the road.

I started up the 78 Elk again today and it ran great. Gas gauge is getting closer to .25 of a tank. Pretty soon I'll try putting in the Sniper EFI.

I started up the 78 Elk again today and it ran great. The fuel gauge is now at a quarter tank. It's getting close to where I will be able to install the Sniper EFI system.
