Looks like I'm climbing up. Just got home ... OBC showing 19.9. I reset it Monday. I guess more relaxed driving makes a difference.

I couldnt believe the difference from running 75 (in a 60) and running 65 on my 5:30 in the morning commute. It really does make a difference. I am shooting for 25mpg if anyone has any tuneup tips...

I go about 350 miles on a full tank...
but it seems milage don't matter anyways...everytime i go to the pump i pay more.....each time

last year when i bought my car it was 28.00 to 30.00 to fill my tank with 93 octane.

Now..I pay 40.00 to 45.00 to fill my tank!

80 seems to be the desired speed for my 528. Comp is showing 25mpg+ at 80 and 20mpg at 60. Doesnt make sense. Anyway, I've been laying off the gas pedal and I am getting 17mpg. fun times, cost me 55 bucks to fill her up.

My H2 gets better mileage than they lead you to believe in that cartoon! Shame on them!~!!

Joking, but it really isn't that bad, the H2 has been made a scapegoat, ALL big ass suvs get shit mileage...

I say, if you can afford it, and dont care if you have to spend more, FUCK IT! It will only get worse.

And, Im buying a motorcycle anyway...

While I am no fan of SUV's nor their gas milage...

SUV's are really are not the problem when it comes to fuel.

95% of Oil and Coal goes to production of electricty in the USA
80% of that electricty is used to purify water
The majority of that water is used to produce crops to feed cows so that McDonalds can serve you burgers. The rest of that water we drink or flush down the toliet, since we insist on having drinkable water as tap water in the US.

Want to save on fuel? #1 get Bush and the oil corps out of our government. #2 fund research on an alternative method to produce electricty. Just then, MAYBE I'll get to drive my M5 beyond the year 2020. As at our current consuption rate of oil, oil will be completely gone before 2020. Our consuption rate is going up? or down... yeah right... Oh but wait we're going to fix SS first cause it's going to run out in 2043. That makes sense. But oh ya, Bush doesn't make money from SS....

Not to start a political fire... heh..

If you disagree with me that's fine and if you like Bush that's fine too. Just don't complain about prices at the pump or when some one shoots you for clean drinking water in 10 years.

WWIII - it's going to be over water and it isn't going to be 1 nation vs another, it will be neighbor vs neighbor unless something is done NOW to solve the future energy issues.

There's TONS more info. Harvard did an extensive study a few years ago and was published in several News Papers.

Personally my opinion on all this; let gas prices go UP. Let them GO UP REAL HIGH. They need to get to the point where the population of the US wakes up and really takes notice. Takes notice of "who's really in charge" ie. the corperations. Everybody "knows" this. We see it every day in lobbyist groups, and in how politions vote. So why do we keep putting up with it? Why do we keep allowing more laws on the books to make it better for Corp America to make more money while society (the people) get screwed? Gas prices at the pump is just the latest. How much will YOU spend at the pump before you go in to work and tell the owner of that mutl-billion dollar company YOU work for that you need a raise to cover the price of gas so that you can show up for work. They *MUST* give you the raise as it is THEY who created the current problem. The corperations have all the power and with that power have allowed and created the current fuel issue. So IMO they are welcome to pay for it.

What have I done? Well last week my department organized and we told our boss we were going to start working from home 2 days a week. The sole reason for this? The price of gas. Did he like it? Yep. He liked it so much he told his boss he was going to do the same. The director of our department doesn't like it at all. However one of the managers stood up and said, "well you own 4 multimillion dollar homes, 8 Dodge Vipers, 2 Austin Martins, and who knows what else and I bet the price of gas really doesn't bother you, however the rest of us that you give 2% and 7% raises to each year while you take $2-$5 million dollar bonus' HAVE A BIG FRICKEN ISSUE with the current state of affairs, so unless you want to pay us all like you pay yourself we're all going to do what we can to save some money" The director wasn't happy but I think he got the point as the conversation ended after that.

Anyway... if you read this, thanks for letting me vent without flaming me! :-)
