18.46 Mpg!

Yep, I got that on a trip today. Driving from the Philly art museum to the chinese place took 1:15 over 6 miles as I got lost and then stuck in a traffic jam due to construction (I also hit a BMW, woops), where my car over heated and I had to do extreme EOC to get it to stop smoking and such.

Was a good dinner though.

Man, I feel bad for people who driving in the city.

City driving sucks. You seriously pulled 18.46mpg? Would have thought that the worst you could get might be in the 30s

So are you going to have any problems with insurance since you hit such a high dollar car ?

I hope the meal was worth it. What did you have ?

It could have been so much worse. It makes me wonder what kind of mileage everyone else was getting ( after all, most vehicles around you would do that on a perfect day on the highway ! )

I don't think the driver noticed, didn't leave a mark. I was prolly going 1"/ssecond at the time.

Vegan general tso's chicken.

Yeah, if only they had mpguinos there'd be a lot less cars on the road (I wanted to take the train in but I had to go out west of the city first where public transit dare not wander).

Wow, I would've thought you got that kind of MPG trying to save yourself from getting run over by a giant ball or something.



But I guess idling would do that also. Have you removed your cooling fan(s)?

ya thats what my area turned into when college came back in session, so many people. It was terrible, they would all walk in street and took like 5 minutes to get past a crosswalk. Now i just park way far away.

I thought my cooling fans were working, perhaps I accidentally removed the wiring....

Anyway, the word "vegan" before anything that sounds non-vegan usually means that it's vegan in the style of whatever follows.

Why yes, it does suck

Now you have driven through what I deal with on any given day.
Tidewater/Hampton Roads Va. has over a million people trying to get to the same place as me every day.
I work hard for my FE and some days it just doesn't help.
We also have over 20 Bridges (most are drawbridges) and tunnels here so that doesn't help either.
It is also why I am glad to work nights.
I go in when there is only 500,000 people on the road and come home when it is less than 100,000 with me.
As much as I dislike traffic her I would not want to deal with L.A.
But I have been in D.C. and N.Y. and believe the traffic is worse here, probably because our road system isn't up to par with theirs.
Schultz,
(not stuck in traffic today)
