It is normal for everything not strapped down to go to the side of the car on the outside of the turn, and scary when you can't achieve this.

YKYAEM when you struggle to match the old EPA MPG for your car because the EPA MPG is too low.

I've never been able to match the old EPA combined MPG for my Mustang. I barely matched the new EPA highway MPG for it once. And that was before I found ecomodder.com.
I've managed to get under the old EPA highway MPG 28 times out of 154 fill-ups. I must be doing something wrong.

You see a ford probe in a driveway and all you think about is Sven7s project anal probe.

You are driving a 22 year old car with 176k miles and averaging 38 MPG. The EPA city rating is 23. You think "How could anyone drive this car bad enough to get that mileage?"

The overall EPA is 27. That's honestly hilarious that your smearing it by that much.

You readily agree to put TWO election signs for someone you don't know very well in your yard just for the "salvage" and are thinking of asking her if she has any bigger one's around that she'd like you to "help" take down & get rid of after the election!

YKYAEM when the big thing looming in your mirror backs off and you recognize the hood emblem.

And it's a Mini.

You refuse to do drive through windows because it's a waste of fuel.
