I thought James usually just ignored the check engine light. At least, he pulled it off in his other car for quite some time. I remember conversing with him that a good solution to the problem is a piece of electrical tape covering up the light. If you can't see it, there's no problem. Maybe not, but it did make me think the gauges on his car are a little peculiar. Either way my car has a gas cap light, so I won't be doing what he did, which is good, since I can't be running off to Winston-Salem all the time. For him, I'm sure it was a minor annoyance, rather than the all day affair it would be for me. Either way, it's about time this Mini service station I keep hearing about finally gets built in the Triangle so I can relax about it.
