Welcome to the site. Great choice on car and colour by the way. 44mpg is amazing in my eyes, but then again I dant have a sc2 either. but i think 31.99 compared to 13.2 on my last car is pretty good.

It just came to me about blogging lol. Its like an orgasm a few good shots and the rest is dribbles lol!

The Coefficient of drage for the Yaris is .29 which is great for an econo-box.

Sure this car is "plasticy" but I say it is refined because although the materials are not expensive, the car is built tight, no rattles, great fit and trim, and does not vibrate except for a suble vibration when one puts a big load on the engine, which I almost never do for better MPG ;-)

It drives like a car much bigger then it looks. Inside it is very simple, pragmatic, utilitarian, and minimalist in design. Beautiful simplicity.

Welcome to the site! Hope you find it as helpful and fun as I do! Great job with the 44.5 MPG! Awesome with an automatic!
