YKYRAE if...
you recognize a Lotus Elise, 3 cars behind you
... you tell yourself that its CdA is bigger than yours
when the car pass you, you immediately forget about hyper-milling 'cause you can read TESLA at the rear
... you follow the car to look at it as long as possible
... (happily traffic prevented it to go faster than PSL)
... you EOC behind it to verify that you will not hear it
... (in fact I could hear the bass from the car behind me
... and entered at home, you search for its CdA
... (if Tesla improved it, but couldn't find conclusive information)

This happened on the same road than this :

If you tow the largest payload you can just so you have a good excuse not to exceed 45-50MPH on any public road.

...On a road trip, you either hold it 'til it hurts or pee in a bottle instead of wasting gas pulling over.
...when you do have to get gas, you wait it out until you find a gas station on the right hand side of the road to make it easier and quicker to get back on the highway.

VW Lupo 3L

YKYAEM when...
...You drool over the following description of the VW Lupo 3L like it's pornography:
Quote:
Fuel consumption as low as this leads to a problem in colder months: Not enough fuel is burned to provide effective heating for the passenger compartment. Volkswagen planned ahead though with an electric auxiliary heater that can pick up the slack where the standard system can't.
From First Drive: Volkswagen Lupo 3L TDI.
