    Looking to interview owners

    Bush has said that 1,000 times, the problem is that its not possible at the moment. Research needs to take place, although we won't see results of 30 years or so.

    Looking to interview owners

    This is my last 20mpg vehicle. My next will be a ~40mpg car. The main reason is that I take it long distance, its the contrast of spending $200 on fuel compared to spending $90 or less.

    2004 Sirius Satellite Ready Radio

    BTW...the tuner is not $300-400. You can sign up and get it for like $50 somewhere. I'm not sure what the current deal is, but its usually quite affordable. Give Sirius as call and ask a salesperson.

    Gas Milage info

    After running exactly 1/2 tank of gas at 60mph I got 21.5 MPG. Not too bad I guess..... I wonder what I was getting at 85 MPH. I bet my K&N airfilter is helping too.... My car is rated for 22mpg at 55 miles per hour. I bet if I went 55 I could get 23mpg.

    Rattling Cam chain ---again

    So its possible to have the tensioners crap out twice. I got mine fixed in May and although the rattle sound is pretty much gone from 2500rpm-3000prm...I can still hear it a bit when the car is cold.

    Going to the Rocky Mountains, what to do before hand?
