I don't even count as a nerd here any more. Hell, I've been forced to drive my wife's minivan for a week and have been okay with it (but I miss having my iPod).

I had to unplug my UG in the fall of 17 when my injector died and I never put it back in. I stopped logging tanks then and never restarted. I got a new job last year that made me think (and cut my commute in half, does that help?) too much to hypermile as well as I used to, and running to get the kids (being closer, I'm designated) makes for more sprinting than cruising commutes.

Is there an mpg rehab I can check myself into for a while?

OTOH, I just had my front brakes replaced at 117k miles, a number I'm pretty happy with. They went metal to metal at 116 and it was a while till I could get it into the shop. I went with OE pads, they do pretty well. I'm happy with the brakes, but my beloved Avid Ascends were apparently discontinued and replaced with something called an Avid Ascend GT. If I'd known that was coming I'd have liked to buy a pair or two to have on hand.
