Congratulations to the remaining people. Honestly, I'm shocked I got as far as I did with my only "mods" being tire pressure and driving style. During the tournament, I didn't drive crazy, but I didn't necessarily have FE in mind. I'm preparing to bid farewell to my vehicle. I will be at 201,000 miles this weekend. I know it's a Camry, but it can't live forever (maybe).

I just posted my 2nd round tank.

WORST TANK EVER: 39.29mpg

In round one, the local college had their Thanksgiving break. So I had about five day with almost no traffic.

In round two, all the college kids came back and the weather was horrible. At the time of fill up this county was in a flash flood watch.

Tough tank Robbie...bad weather and traffic stinks!

I think Tango sharpened Olivia's teeth today...the Vibe might have a shot at the semifinals...stand by to stand by!

Could we see an all Ford Final Round? Taurus vs. Festiva?
