What the heck - My dad stole a whole swimming pool, and called it a farm pond for tax purposes.

Has anybody calculated how many miles have to be driven to get an overall savings from the results of their dedicated testing miles? I suspect that for many of our more valuable members, redemption only arrives if other people copy or learn from their work.

But Bob, we are doing all that testing for others. It's the global picture. That's what I like about EcoModder!!

One of my jackass family members brought up a quite invalid point about testing procedures...

"If you guys didn't test everything so thoroughly, you'd burn less fuel, accomplishing your end goal while sitting on the couch."

He wasn't joking, either.
