Your state DMV/RMV website should be able to provide this information.

comment 2001 Subaru Legacy L Wagon - Gas smell and light shaking
The hose that you've circled is connected to the intake manifold at the top, and to the injector line at the bottom, right? If so, it's the fuel pressure regulator vacuum hose. As far as I know, there shouldn't be any fuel in that hose, so I don't think it'll have anything to do with the fuel smell. However, if the regulator is damaged for some reason, I suppose there could be fuel in there; the regulator itself could also be directly responsible for the smell.

comment Engine braking vs. braking in neutral on slippery & normal conditions
Please don't reply to comments and answers in your question. If someone brings up a point that needs refinement in your post, just integrate the necessary revisions with the rest of the text. All you did with the various @user segments was make this even harder to read and figure out what you're asking.

comment Found this in my wheel
At first glance, it looks like a rotor's dust shield, but the picture is pretty unclear. Can you light it a bit better? Also, what do you mean by "inside" the wheel?

comment Batery is above 12 volts but car ignition fades
Get the battery load tested. It may be the right voltage but not be putting out enough current.

"Oily coating" to the tires? Do you mean wax? Oil destroys rubber.

Sounds like the pitch of the nuts you bought is wrong.
