You drive to work the night before and sleep in the parking lot because you get better mpg with no traffic at night vs being stuck in traffic for 2 hours during the morning rush hour commute.

My work is 55 miles away. So to save wear and tear on my car, I usually end up staying overnight for 2 nights in a row. After work, I go to the gym, shower, grab dinner, then I just end up watching att u-verse on my phone for the rest of the night.

Yes, I do end up having to drive home eventually to see my girl friend, lol.

This way, most if my miles are highway mpg .

Eventually, when I get more experience and responsibilities, my bosses will let me work from home.

If you've ever looked at the ads here on EM and thought, "do they really think anyone on here will buy a CAI?"
