Thanks. This tank is "only" sitting around 80. I killed it doing the mirror & roof rack tests earlier (it was down around high 60's by the end of that nonsense). It'd take a heck of a lot of patient driving to beat a Basjoos' 90+ tank. Not saying it can't be done, but...

Just like earlier we'll see where your at in another 6 months. Still got the belly pan left. Great Job

133 on a non-hybrid. You ARE a freak.

No worries - the knowledge is totally worth the FE hit. I was completely kidding about it being "nonsense". Honest!

Oh Man, I was just telling a bunch of people at a party yesterday how there's this guy driving a 'blackfly' who any day now is about to break the 100 mpg barrier with a non-hybrid drivetrain. They were quite impressed.

Congrats.

BTW, did it feel like you were making an athletic achievment, like skiing a perfect GS run or something?
