    I'm on pace for the worst km/tank in a long time, 320km with a 1/4 tank left.

    went to the dealership today, told them I have driveline vibes around 40-60km/h and they ordered the parts to do the TSB. they didn't even drive it.

    yep. it's kind of weird, doesn't do it all the time. when it does it will vibrate for a second or so, then stop for a second, then vibrate again and so on.

    Mine doesn't occur at those speeds so in the flow chart I don't qualify

    Also , most of the guys in the big driveline vibration thread that have had this TSB done said it didn't work or made it worse

    That was a good read...thanks!

    I am going to fill up with Premium soon just to see what difference that makes.

    Also has anyone used Costco gas?

    I use Costco gas for about a year now. Previously, or when Costco is not around or closed I use Shell. In both cases 87 Regular. Don't see any difference except Costco fuel is a bit cheaper.

    Another two tanks and another 20.5 mpgs. Looks like the intake manifold spacer is doing the trick. Woohoo!

    Had a fill up today, put in 54.5 litres with 248 km on the trip :D, still breaking it in and I was pretty heavy on the gas doing 120 km/h on cruise, on highway 40 from hinton, goddamn that cruise control likes to floor the engine to get back to the set speed. Also half of that was city driving, im hoping I didn't get one of the ones that's horrible on gas from the factory.
