I'll likely have switched to electric by then.
Or I may keep the up! though that won't last beyond 20 years / 2033 as it'd need new CNG tanks.


A true ecomodder will take the decals - they add the least weight

I'm hoping that I will still be driving my 2015 Toyota Corolla(83k miles) in 10 years. Already paid for, save some money not buying another car. I regularly get 40-50 MPG. Lifetime Average is 43 MPG.

RE: site traffic being down: I promise I haven't quit!

My son is moving and I've been tapped to help him move. On the upside, I'm actually getting to put some miles on the truck and get back into its groove. I'm even sanding and painting some of its rustier bits!

Ugh. That poor old truck. But I'm never going to give it up, because there are NO genuinely compact trucks to be had anymore and if I try even a little bit, I can get better fuel economy than those behemoths on their best day. Sooo...if I win the Silverado, I will promptly sell it to purchase rust repair panels for my old Truck.

If I win either Scangauge, I will pass them on to someone else on the forum, as I can approximate the functions between Torque Pro and my Prius' preexisting displays, and of course the truck doesn't have an OBD I, II, or any number really.

Does having the Haynes manual in the passenger seat count as OBD?

If savings on fuel consumption, even with decent health, job and family situation, was the most important priority in life!
