Hey, Basjoos,

I just went back and looked at #1 and noticed where you said LED replacement headlights "are several years off."

That was in 2007. It is now several years later. Any thoughts on that score? You had stated that you guesstimated the headlight use (due to considerable nighttime driving) was costing you around 2-3mpg, rather a noticeable dip into the results, and only noticeable because your fuel consumption is otherwise very low. It might be one of the few vehicles where the headlights' signal is clearly discernible against the noise of other loads.

Lots of LED headlight options out there now, and some of them don't suck. Thoughts?


Lead or follow. Either is fine.
