    Update: with ambient temps at 56f at 4:30 this morning, I drove it with a trail vehicle to the gym about 10 miles from my house. At mile 7 it started acting up. With the engine...

    Each time it has stalled it has been on the side of a busy thoroughfare. By the time it limps its way back to the garage, I'm usually so frustrated with it that I just leave it. Plugs are brand new...

    Howdy all,
