I try to wring out my Electra at least once each ride. It ois most fun cruising at 55-65 (less annoying rattles), but a couple hard accelerations always seems to make it run better.

You don't even have to waste a bullet on that ole Mustang.   I'd a shot it long ago.    Blow the gunk out, thats what mechanics like to hear.   Sometimes you just can't not do a little decarboning..........its fun........dg
