There is always a tar, or sludge at the bottom of the pan. Don't let that scare you. That is why the "pick-up" is ABOVE the bottom of the pan. Service it. And my advice is to throw-away the...

x2. I don't believe there is enough depth in the paint to block-sand the factory installed "orange-peel". Thing is, everybody has it now. Even the high-end vehicles.

Many good points Ramajama. But don't discount the "economy-of-scale" for a vehicle that is produced at such a great volume. On a side-note, GM has just perfected an aluminum "spot-welding" process....

Just went from a 265 to a 285. I'm waiting for the mileage hit. I think my truck is calibrated for a 245. My commute is 52 miles. My car is correct on this. With the 265's, the mileage was 48...

I used butyl tape. They use it for setting windshields. I rolled it thin and used it as a gasket around my "third-light". It helped, but I think there is something in the rear-window also.

Fuel pressure was good while you checked it. Maybe not so good at other times? CEL scan as a "misfire"? Still could be a low-pressure issue. Not saying to replace it, just check.
