    Anything Auto
    It's one thing to join the 400 mile club with 50% highway driving, but I joined it with about 35% highway driving and 65% city and suburban driving. Fuel economy was the 2nd best I've ever had for a tank as were the total miles driven on the tank. 93 Octane 89 Octane

    Anything Auto
    Just came back from the Grand Prix of Americas. The ALMS event was excellent! I got to see one of the Porsches wipe out near the amphitheater. The rest was uneventful (to the best of my knowledge). And my GOODNESS are those cars loud! Instantaneous ear ringing. Got some shaky video at that area...
