Skip the first 22 seconds, it's boring, after that they get to hammering for proper fitment
If you haven't heard of the bigger hammer theory, you aren't a submariner or a mechanic. The theory is this; if it doesn't work, hit it with a hammer (known in scientific circles as mechanical agitation (thank you XO Joachim) ) if it doesn't work after hitting it with a hammer, hit it with a bigger hammer. If it still doesn't work, replace it... it's broke.
When running full speed, the fuel lasts about 12 minutes, thats about 60 miles at about 250 mph, and few freeways are going to give that type of high speed opportunity, but this is a gas guzzling beast even if you half the speed (125mph) and double the distance and time before you have to fill up again.
