My bad fuel mileage is probably a result of my over devoloped right foot. And FWIW I feel your pain. My truck is in pieces right now too. I'm stuck in my little 88 Mazda B2000! Stupid muffler fell off the other day and now it sounds like a stinkin ricer!

If the VP tap for the Comp isnt making a good connection the Comp will act like an Edge EZ. Triple check your tap use a Posi-Tap for the best connection and make sure you have tapped the right wire.
