I harvested another 23 gallons of grease today. That should be about 700 miles of distance for the Mercedes if it was not leaking fuel! I did a two hour drive yesterday and noticed the car was struggling on grease. A closer inspection revealed a lot of fuel leaking from the white plastic manual primer on the lift pump. I had ordered a replacement three weeks ago, but it never arrived. I bought another plastic fuel primer to install on Tuesday.
