    I don't think E10 or ethanol-free will make much of a difference in how your car runs, though your gas mileage will be slightly better without ethanol. If the gas is dirty, that might make a difference. Which reminds me, when did you last replace your gas filter?

    Your vapor-return system location might make a difference if you're filling up while your car is on an angle instead of flat. I had a D100 with the vapor canister disconnected and removed before I bought it. When I filled up and tried to top off with the front end pointing downhill, it leaked gas from that opening. If you top off on a severe enough angle toward the canister, gas might enter it.

    You might consider buying various sensors from a junkyard and seeing if they change anything. In my Dakota, a new IAC went bad less than a year after it was replaced, but the unit I bought from a junkyard has been performing fine going on two years.

    Goona try a few cycles of not filling it all the way and see what happens. After it cleared up the other day, the IAC was reacting as it was suppose to.

    I doubt it's the vapor return system. I mean, I never fill any of my vehicles past the first click since I don't like wasting fuel, but on the 300M when my aunt tried filling my mom's and she went for another go, it barfed fuel out on her - she said she didn't understand why, and I said "The sticker on the fuel door says do not top it off!"

    If it's the crank sensor it will misbehave seemingly randomly until it outright dies on you. I know everyone says not to buy non-Mopar sensors, but it was $35 well spent for the one at Advance Auto for me. They always run 25-30% off online orders, free in-store pickup.
