The Commish was in Houston,Tx for business with a day layover. So for grins I meet him halfway from Pflugerville in Brenham, Home of Blue Bell Ice cream.
Had A nice lunch at Manuel's Mexican food off the main drag. Spent about 3 hours talking FE and ideas and looking over each others ride. I must say his rented Stang was much more impressive then the Daewoo-woo. This was my first highway trip in the Woo and the weather was perfect. Round trip was 44.x 12MPG's over EPA Yes aero mods work even if it's duct tape and cardboard.
Yeah, I asked for "Compact" from the rental agency and got a guzzler -- combined FE so far is slightly below 30.
There's something to be said for talking about FE without the interference a computer screen.
I recommend that if there's a member or two near you, schedule a meetup. I've found you can always learn something new and know that you won't get a blank stare with terms like EOC and FE. Taking a look at others' mods and vehicle setup is great in person.
Not to mention, you might end up with a good lunch
