As for me, I'm not trying to bust chops. Rather, I'm trying to save a lot of grief from you.
I have property and a son in California. It would've been cheaper to register his truck here instead of there. In addition, where I am in northern AZ there are no emissions laws. We didn't do it and I'm glad we didn't. He passed emissions anyways, but the CHP sat outside his employer's parking lot at closing time and they pulled every out of state plate to check registration.
Never think for just one minute that some fellow employee of yours will think it's "cool" for you to pay less than they do.
Do you have a "3 way" fuel filter? Should you if you don't? A fuel filter with a fuel return line cuts down a LOT on vapor lock. the circulating fuel runs cooler than some gas just sitting over the valve cover.
Paved roads are just for getting you to the starting point!
