Well we hope it's fixed. Haven't had time to drive it much to find out definitively. I moved downtown so I drive the car much less often, in fact only back from the shop so far, but the amount of rust he pulled out of that screen would surely have caused the kinds of problems I was experiencing. If it happens again I need to reseal the tank. I don't mind doing the work, every bit improves the car, but I hated chasing a mysterious gremlin!
