Yay, I'm a statistic!!!

Interesting anecdote: I receive more flak on the simple fact that I use studded tires in the winter then for the fact that I spent $35K on a 4x4 crewcab that gets (according to my Fuelly) 13.4L/100kms average.

And Gas is $1.119/L here.

Uh, aren't studded winter tires a good idea in an Alberta winter? Granted the last time I was there in the winter I was in an AWD Suzuki Aerio with all seasons on it, but at least I had a set of chains in the back ha ha.

I asked a guy at work how much it cost to fill up each week in his truck and he answered with a smugness just as if i was talking about his daughter winning a beauty contest.

People want to feel rich, even if the object that makes them feel this way constantly makes them poor.

"Economy cars" are synonymous with "poor persons car".
