You Know You're An Ecomodder when you try to "reduce weight" after dinner/meal before heading home...

(I visited my parents last night, and after dinner stopping by their place, we were all poking fun at me for buying a brand new Mustang and ruining/ecomodding (family/my pov) it- when I went to the restroom I made a "fumigation" joke which then led to several "weight saving" jokes.)

YKYAEM ...

When you're doing like 28% worse than NEDC with your new ride and yet you're still happy about it as it already represents a 17% drop in CO2 output , 95% drop in NOx, and a near-total elimination of fine particulate matter.

YKYAEI...You've ever even wondered if your fuel could be going bad in your daily driver since it's been so long since you filled up.

Diesel ?
That ought to take a while to go bad due to its higher evaporation temperature.

Yes, agreed. But the fact that I even considered it.

It's been over a month since I filled up, and with probably be about another month before I need to.
