Thumbs up Guess I am "unstable..."

I'm a bonified horse power junky, but lately I've been more obsessed with MPH than HP! I'm trying to find more and more ways to make time to work on my Cavalier instead of my T-Type or AMX!

They say MPG is the new HP.
I say, you're on the "bleeding" edge!

I can see some of that article in me, Carlo. I think since I spend so much time in my daily driver [I commute about 38 miles each way to work] that it comes naturally to want and improve the economy. And there is a technical nature to it, so that appeals to me as well.

That's the same commute for me. My big learning curve is that I am not car savvy, so it takes longer for me to understand what people are doing here on GS. Today, if I was talking to a version of myself from two years ago, my two year old version would be drooling with eyes glazed over.
