The gas spewing issue has resurfaced and I brough the car back to my Toyota dealership. They are replacing the gas tank because they said the valve is remaining open when filling up instead of closing.

We purchased a 2007 Corolla 5 weeks ago. 92% of the miles are driven on the highway and it is only getting 27 m.p.g. The service people at the dealership say the computer is learning how we drive and to wait until 10,000 miles to be concerned. They also said the sticker is government measures and the dealer is not allowed to change the sticker numbers. But the sales people verbally say the mileage is supposed to be 30/38. I asked why not just buy a used car then and forget all this "hoping it does what they say" stuff. They do not have and answer as to why our other cars(Honda,BMW,Volvo) and others we know do not have this "break- in" period. The manual even says there is no break in period. No one mentioned you will get the sticker mileage EVENTUALLY. We asked them to write down for us what the gas mileage we should be getting and when, but they just avoided the issue.
FYI They do not seem to know how to operate or repair the "new" remote/locking system. The car has been in their shop 7 times for a key remote and locking system that only works intermittently. They have it kept twice an entire day for that. And it still does not work properly.
Good luck with yours!

I have the same problem with my 95 model the warning light comes on and I have only got 277 miles out the tank, when I filles up it took only 40 litres and it is a 50 litre tank, is it not safe on the engine to drive with 10 litres left in the tank?

The light comes on at the reserve level, leaving you with 2. 5 gallons or so after the light goes on. If the light went on the minute before you ran out of gas, that wouldn't be so useful.
11 HP from a Cold Air Intake? Oh, yeah, PROVE IT. If you look at how your air filter is set up, it is already sucking air from the outside. I don't see how much colder it'll get with the new $200 air intake.
What you might notice is a bit better throttle response and more noise that makes it sound faster. I'd guess a couple of HP at wide open throttle is all you could hope for. They say 11, I say 3, so let's split it at 7 HP at wide open throttle and very high engine revs AND a very cold day outside.

I own a 1992 corolla. When the car is just sitting there idling, it is a little rough. If you bring the rpm up slowly, the car revs up fine and smooth. If you gun the throttle, it acts like it is running on 3 cyls. sorta cuts out about 3000 rpm I guess.
when driving the car, it is rough upon acceleration and starts bucking about 35mph.
would this have anything to do with injectors? Its going to get a tune-up this weekend. should I look at anything else?
