Hey, robbiewt
What have your current driving conditions been like?

Here in Michiana we got hit with lake effect all weekend. Got about 2 to 3 inches. about 30 to 40 percent of my commute consists of ice or hardpack-covered roads. That, and it's flippin' FREEZING, too!

It has been cold. It is 1:30pm and it finally got into the mid-twenties. Last week there were two days of rain, sleet and some light snow. No major accumulation. On Sunday I did a 40 mile drive with a 30mph headwind. Still a half tank to go.

Rain and snow is in the forecast for Tuesday through Thursday.

Well I was hoping to have my block heater for this round but I wont have my replacement til friday at least, and I have to drive to work the next three days (probably 150 miles total). And the weather is supposed to be crap too.

Itll be a tough one whoever Im up against. I think the weather is the deciding factor here.

I've been cursing the wind lately. 20-30mph nearly EVERY DAY. It'll be nice when we finally get wind generators, but in the meantime... argh mateys.

It warmed up a bit -- so I posted a 40.7 MPG (60-mile run) after some tweaks today. Where was this a week ago? Argh again!
