I don't use the radio traffic reports to guide me. Maybe I should.
It depends on your route. For me, the 10 is always at risk of congestion. The 710 is usually fine unless there is a Semi jackknife or a really rainy day. The 105 is mostly fine except on Friday going home. But they are *always* risky to go into blind.
But the Radio traffic reports are spotty. What *I* want is the mayor to create a public radio traffic station. It could still have commercials, but it could also have lots of "LA Civic event" announcements and such. This is such a no-brainer and would help everyone. The commercial traffic reports aren't good enough for the needs of LA traffic.
I also use these before I go to work and before I go home :
I had my left rear off Saturday for the inside patch - seems my plug was good and had gotten inside all the way but was leaking down to 21psi in a few days to a week from 37psi. Seems to be holding up pretty good now but the other tires have been dropping a few psi per week so with the colder weather ya all may want to recheck your tire pressures. A 5 gallon air tank at about 80-100psi is good for several refills/topoffs for 4 tires. Then I refill the air tank with a 12 volt air pump which beats waiting for the pump to inflate the tires outside although it may be nice to run the pump in cold dry air to charge the air tank.
Surely someone has mentioned the SuperMID to you by now... ODB1 compatible FE computer...
Yes, I've seen that now. Looks interesting. I hesitate to wire another gizmo to my ecu with all the other accessories already installed. Since I'm still new here I'll try other FE methods first, then see how it goes. So far I have so many unanswered question that I can answer with the tools I have, so I don't have a crushing desire for a SuperMID yet. That may change soon.
I didn't have my front underbelly pan on for this tank (I took it off when i fixed the waterpump). The temps are getting colder (we had 3 days with frost). So not too bad. Not so much stop and go this time, I am sure that helped.
Yeah metro 86.7 good job. Now were is that 140
