    I dont understand what that could be. Try changin your fuel filter and see if that fixes it. How many miles are on your car? Over 180K I imagine...

    check to make sure there are no slow leaks anywhere. change your fuel filter, get a new gas cap, and throw some fuel injection cleaner in the tank.

    hahahahahahahaha

    also, as far as the post question, make sure you are not leaking any fuel from your injector seals. If the ECU notices a huge pressure drop, it will throw a code for fuel system.
