I don't get why going faster automatically justifies any price, but efficiency demands an actuarial justification of every last cent. I'm sure racers ask if that tenth of a second is really worth it, but they decide it is. That same personal decision goes into efficiency: it's not about saving money; it's about saving gas.
It seems like people saving gas spend very little to do so... it's like stripping to the rails or scrounging around for a blower off an old Detroit 6-71. Gains are fast and easy, and basically justify themselves, even if they don't pencil out in dollars-per-mile.
In regards to the sub-topic, I'm a vegetarian too... have been since '98. Booya. :evil:
well i dunno i brag around here (sometimes i lie and decrease 1L or so) and people aren't impressed at all... in fact sometimes they don't understand.
Sometimes people laugh ;( and there are those who just don't care. So i try to be more simple now with my terms like, "I get 1000 km a tank (average for a person is less than 500 km full tank)" and i hear BULL****.
That's better ^^ and 35 is what i got, before learning about gassavers and cleanmpg (I was a regular greenhybrid dude until i realize i was being someone that i'm not!). Now I'm almost breaking my 50 segment on my daily routine in school, work and city to city driving (usually visiting friends).
Catching right up to those pro's tails then again their talent was an inspiration to make my own.
If your reading this, then good for you, your saving some gas because your here.
