It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than it is for an Escalade owner to enter Hypermiler Heaven.

This is a goldmine, apologies if anything I have posted offends those of this faith - I intend only good things.

The Scangauge is my shepherd, I shall want an UG.
It makes me slow down in green pastures; it guides me in still winds.
It restores my tank average. It leads me in right paths for MPGs sake.
Even though I walk though the valley of the shadow of consumption, I fear no garages.
For it is with me; it's MPG and AVG - they comfort me.
You prepare saved money before me in the presence of doubters; you anoint me without oil; my tank remains half full.
Surely FE and efficiency that follow me all the miles of my drive, and I shall dwell in the house of the SG as long as the guarantee period.

"To fear the low MPG is the beginning of freedom."
(adapted from Ecclesiastes 1:14a)

That takes the cake as the funniest thing I've read on EcoModder. Evar.

Thanks for the belly laugh!

I drafted up an abridged version. I'm kind of rusty though so it's not perfect! Hope you all enjoy.
