131: You don't use the car's starter anymore, you need all that extra juice for the EOC! Even if it means getting out of your car in a public parking lot, pushing your car for 1 or 2 mph and then quickly bump starting in reverse whoo!!!

If i can get away without using my starter I will, now I can make my 12 volt last even longer! Take that nay sayers!

133) Someone asks you how fast you were driving, and you answer, "oh, about 75 US mpg."

134) You search for ways to introduce fuel effeciency into the conversation with non mpg concerned friends who are talking about something totally unrelated.

When your driving your car around thinking oh, I'm getting pretty good mileage and then you come to the web site and you all of these vehicles getting great mileage and so you keep trying to figure out what to fiddle with, next.

Gary please use numbering system.

Since Gary's was 135, I'll be 136.

136)You sell a 4 door automatic to almost double your mpg with a 2 door manual.

P.S. I'm working on doubling it so the 7mpg difference is only for a short time.

136 sounds more like something someone with common sense would do, dunno if it qualifies.

I will try to remember to number them, in the future.

On 136, I think Compaq's point is that he had a nice comfortable car that got good mileage, but once he got involved in gas saver's, he decided that his car just wasn't good enough and so he went through the hassle to unload it and find something more acceptable. I don't think he'd have probably done that if it weren't for gassaver's.
