- When you are driving 50 mph where you usually drive 40 and you feel like you are in a NASCAR race!

- When you are going into extreme hypermiling mode and you can't understand why people don't pass you when they are able

You go into Home Depot and you wonder why it's not called Mod Depot.
Every tutorial post you make starts with the term "Stock Engineering Fail".

When you get it up to 40 and your daughter asks "why are you going so fast?"

I don't know if this is part of being "one" but I re-read about 50 pages AGAIN !

Then I detached(sorry...), to PIWOSLAW's Variants(Peugeot 307-Diesel) aero-MODDING write up and found it very interesting and warming about the labor done INCLUDING the FE he has attained with that vehicle!
Read all his full write up, 293 posts...

YKYAEM "if" the vehicle you are driving/been driving; still has tape residue on the rear quarter panels, rear hatch window and other places where previously WAXED cardboard was for a KAMM tail. (making note to self, have to do it better/more enduring next time)

11/07/12 Coming back to this posting to read more interesting: what if anybody else is a YKYAEM... (but sadly, nothing yet )
