Gas here is running 2 bucks! I'm using points reward systems to get breaks on my gas - plus trying to get ahold of a CRX that can be converted to the 6-speed - so it will be done when gas gets back above $4 later in the year.
Looking to trade for an early 1988 Honda CRX HF (Pillar mounted seat belts)
I do try to be efficient whenever I can. My home electric bill is under $40 11 months of the year. I ride the motorcycle whenever I can but its just been toooooooo cold around here to do that. It's actually been in the teens at night and 30-40s in the day and my electric this billing cycle is only $35.63.
When it came to getting another car I had a few options like a Celica GT-S and a couple other domestic 5-speeds but I started thinking about how much I hated the 4 banger and decided that I would just get the V8. Plus, it's nice having the SUV for stuff that the bike can't really do (groceries, furniture, ect) and the more I thought about it, the car couldn't do half the things I needed a larger vehicle for.
I can't tell what/how I'm doing at the moment, the weather is too variable. Not sure if everything is right with Wile-E after his rebuild or not, never drove him in weather like this before. Got another awful tank to add to the log, city thrashing in snow. Some of the mods I did were never gonna shine in winter, since they were taking advantage of waste heat that isn't there right now. So kinda have low enthusiasm level for discussing what's going on with him when I haven't got a clue due to unstable conditions. Could probably use a warm air and/or grille block mod to "wake up" some of the other mods, but still trying to get a feel for what's happening. Last tank of 32.64 was much more like his old self, that was clear roads and more highway. Tank I'm entering now was less highway, much colder again, and snowy city thrashes, he doesn't seem to be running very well in air temperatures below about -8C. Gets a little warmer or tips over 0 and he seems much happier. Hoping for good numbers on current fill, due to expecting mostly highway trips.
I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice
