The posited an explanation about an air in the fuel line that I bought because I coincidentally had driven a few miles the day before with my gas cap off. The next two times, I simply pulled off the road at the next convenient point, restarted the engine, and the problem was gone. Most recently I did this less than a minute into limp mode so its clearly some kind of transient event. Has any one had similar experiences? Any explanations?
