Abstract The contribution of future star formation fuel to a galaxy from evolved stars remains uncertain. We present a correlation of discrete clouds of HI gas with evolved variable stars and find a number of cases where stellar mass-loss is likely to have created the cloud. The results of this study impact our understanding of both stellar outflows and galactic gas recycling. This research was partially funded by NSF grant AST-0917810.
