Traveling the world testing the MPG of different cars!

Just kidding, had a lot going on in my life (still do) and was getting disappointed that I didn't have a good work space or time to work on my car but I'm looking at possibly buying a house after the wedding and I'd like to make it a priority again.

That and I found myself getting like 33mpg tanks of the winter and it made me sad.

Glad you're back.

My mpg took a "winter hit" too. Just give yourself credit for your efforts - whatever your winter mpg was, it would have been lower without your attention to fuel economy. Ya have to take the good with the bad, make lemonade, etc.
