I am happy now. My last tank was a record 57 mpg. Going Metro again has proven to be a sound economical decision for my family, and a help to the environment. Reducing MY dependence on middle-east oil makes me feel good. So yes, I am happy as a bug in a rug.... But....... Man I can just taste the big 60!!

I will always try to do better with what I have, since I do like my a-bodies. I seem to have gained about 13-15% overall since starting here at the beginning of summer. I did think Id be doing pretty dang good if I could get 35 on downstate trips, and Ive been doing better than that lately. Now Im going to try for 40. I wont hit it this year, theres not much time left before the snow flies and I put away the Celeb for winter. But next year Ill try the thinner tires, since most of the noise when driving comes from the tires. And over the winter Ill probably come up with a hinged fastback that still allows trunk access, and a more aero nose.
