Technically it's like "Oh,

Technically it's like "Oh, is that so?" But same difference.

yup, mine does the same. instead of changing the pump loading though, i'm going to try offloading the entire electrical system to the grid by going alternator-optional with a deep cycle battery, a trickle charger and my solar panel.

Thanks for the compliment but I must defer to basjoos. He has the top spot in the gaslog as well as all 10 top tanks. All hail the king, basjoos!

Ah, he got back on top of

Ah, he got back on top of you for the top stop, that'll change with your next tank though, I hate to say,

Anyway, you'll get some tanks in there I'm sure. I definately intend to get back up there.

Yes, I will probably jump back on top temporarily with a 57 MPG tank. But eventually I wont be able to catch up if he keeps posting 70 MPG tanks. I am doomed until I get the CX tranny. Then maybe I can approach 70. That and a little SVOboy magic which I will be testing tomorrow.

The tension builds...
