Swell video! Golly, good FE sure is rewarding!

I think there's something to be said for getting to a point of minimalism in certain aspects of our lives. The feelings don't happen overnight. Compared to the Jones' Family, I don't need a new car to feel good (or one with more horsepower, or in my case, newer, with more features and better FE).

There's a level of satisfaction from hopping in the old Integra (now complete with a taped mirror, due to a combination of incidents that were partly my fault, but recently not), and striving for good FE. Especially in this economy, we need to revert back to the small things that make life better.

The bummer, is often filling up and getting a lot less than you expected. Not so happy.
