Some times an Old Timer like me will use terms because I learned them, but now folks have a hard time with them. Fan belt? Used to drive the Fan, but then started to drive the Generator, which is now the Altenator. So when talking about the Fan belt, in a car that now has electric driven fans, we get lost. Glove Box, Boot, Wind Screen? How about a Spanner? Then there is the Dash? Never did figure out exactly what is meant by the Sump. What is the Front of an engine? Which is the #1 Plug? Where the heck is the Bonnet?

I try to spell out a term, when first using it, but then not always. VOM Volt Ohm Meter. But when you are talking to some one who is new to the game, one must be fair.

This from a post by Christ that had me stumped -
PSL = Posted Speed Limit
CVT = Constant Velocity Transmission, typically a snowmobile type clutch

Adding to that -

CSL - Cautionary Speed Limits (not generally law)

CVT actually stands for Continuously Variable Transmission. It consists of two pairs of conical pulleys and a belt encased with free running pusher shackels on it. When the pulleys are squeezed together on one end it enlarges the radius at which the shackels on the belt grip to them, and it drives the other set of pulleys apart lowering the radius at which the belt attacks them.
Unlike other automatic gearboxes it allows an infinite gradiation of the input/output ratio so you can choose your ideal RPM at almost any speed, or accelerate at constant RPM without loss. It is featured by many small and medium sized automatic cars, like my Honda Insight II.

Pita & rpita

PITA - Pain In The A**

RPITA - Royal Pain In The A**

I don't think we invented these acronyms but my father and I came up with them so we could talk about a woman who was on a multiple-day white water rafting trip with us (without her knowing).
We could just look at each other, shake our heads and say "PITA" whenever she was acting up. It helped alleviate some of the stress she caused us and kept us from tossing her off the raft.
Since then it's become a well used acronym for us and the things that fit the definition has grown exponentially.

And,
I suppose we don't need to spell out the meaning of a RFPITA.

IMHO has always meant 'honest opinion' to me... as though one needs to make the differentiation between an honest opinion and a dishonest one.

Thanks for the list. Perhaps some good additions would be:

FC = Fuel Consumption
FCR = Fuel Consumption Rate

Or,

ROFC = Rate of Fuel Consumption
