Agreed about the Southerners having a great advantage in winter months.

This frigid Wisconsin air is terrible for warm-ups. Not windy, not snowy, roads are reasonably clear.. just really cold air.

Looking good!

You're one up on me, for today anyway. I'm trying to stay in the top ten myself. It's easier staying over 50mpgus in the diesel than it was with the gas motor.

Congratulations! Glad to see a BMW doing so well

Although, now I have a German Diesel, I can feel a battle of Das Autos coming on..

True! I wish I could check how low I could go with a boat tail for Berta.

We'll see how it will go. TDI are more FE engines for sure than my old fashioned TDS but I won't give up! Das Autos are going for FE War
