#97 you don't wash your car

#97 you don't wash your car because you know if you want to move it that will require starting the car and loosing gas.( I haven't washed my car since last year. I wait for the rain to wash it.)

I have always liked metros.

I have always liked metros. When I was in 5th grade I remember telling my mom she should by a metro. I have always liked small underpowered cars (until I felt the need for speed, age 17-20).


101. You look at cars in the parking lot and determine where areodynamics could be improved.

102. You look at cars in the parking lot and to determine what car has the lowest drag coefficient.

103. You have recived a ticket for rolling through a stop sign.

OK, that's maybe an extension of #39 (You drive like you're stoned).

This soulds like a job for a "get-out-of-jail-free-card" ... A GasSavers.org membership ID card!

Yeah, an officer parks in the neighborhood every morning during school hours and I coast past at around 17mph and get up to 25 (limit) down the hill. He's never around when I'm coasting down the other direction (over limit)

...and #92 was for fun -- my friend wanted to try it out and we wanted to see who could drive more efficiently -- so there :P

I solved my 4th gear problem, it cost $24, PM me for details. It made my 4th come on sooner on the freeway and on the streets, also my idle is lower by 75-100rpm.

101 yep, 102 yep 103 not yet but my days could be counting...

105 you check other tires and examine their pressure and the max pressure that tire can support. Then you dream about "I wonder what kind of mielage I can get in that."
