You might be an ecomodder if your car gets stuck in the automatic car wash when the tires are at factory pressure and you didn't know until someone "helped" you out and "corrected" the tire pressures.

Dropping the air pressure from 50 psi to 25 psi lowered the car enough to make it drag on the track that draws the car through the wash bay.
Getting out lifted the car enough to get it unstuck.

When you avoid that issue because you knew the tires were low from the mpg read out so fixed it asap.

I've been kicking myself for that one.
My only defense is that I have been driving rental cars for almost 2 weeks and 40 ish seemed great. And my SGII isnt very reliable nor accurate.
