    It helped for 15 miles or so, but it just wasn't enough. I just got back from picking the car up and it ran okay this morning. It did throw code p0171. No idea what is causing it.

    Thanks to all for a great day! The guys from Cleveland made it back via West Virginia. (Don't ask why, it was a GPS thing)

    For all concerned, we did get back and found the hose under the fuel regulator came off, hence the loss of the power.

    All in all it was very fun, even with the un planned stops on the side of the road! Mark, again, thank you to a very fun filled run.

    I think Mark came out and re-programmed our cars while we were inside! Kidding Mark!

    The only thing I can think of is that the winery/brewery was located at about the middle, or favored towards 77. So, the GPS took the most direct route. To be honest, I prefer on the weekend taking 77; less stressful IMO.

    Glad you got home okay too.

    A paper map would never do that to you. :wink: I use a GPS as a map, but rarely to tell me where to go. I'm glad you guys got home & had a fun day. It was nice meeting new friends.

    We ran the return route back to Canal Winchester. Great run and probably the same amount of time as 77. The roads were twisty, hilly, and great!

    Exactly, After I shot around that Buick on 327 I actually drifted the next two corners ..... Not on purpose and my sphincter got a bit tight!!

    Sounds like a fuel delivery problem, or lack of delivery.
    Fuel pump may be getting hot and slowing down.
    Fuel pumps don't throw codes.

    Chris,

    Interesting, thanks for the idea! When it first happens I thought fuel filter, but was told it's all one piece. I'll check again.
