This is a serious problem. And, don't believe it only leaks when cold. When it's hot, the leak may be hot noticeable because the water vaporizes off the hot engine parts before it hits the ground.

I think talking about miles per tank is crap. For one thing, it depends on how low the tank is when you re-fill it. Miles per gallon makes a lot more sense.

These kit cars aren't worth much on the used car market, even with 000000.8 miles and not running.
