Ummm..... I did.
In plain English, The Search engine .....sucks!
and I'm not the only one that thinks so.. look up .."LN3 Rockers"....
if it can be searched...
1) Only allows viewing one post at a time, and you then have to re-enter the search,
either by retyping it,
or by using the "BACK" button, which gives an error ( Page has expired) the instant you leave it,
and then the "REFRESH" button,
and then, the "Retry" button
to get more, items of no relevance,
to the search question.
2) When scrolling down to bottom of the results page, and clicking "NEXT" I get:
Could not obtain search results

') AND t.topic_poster = u.user_id AND f.forum_id = t.
3) It reports that it returns 4675 hits (supposedly) and only two on the first page
have anything to do with mileage. One of them is this post,
the other is the "guy on the goKart" movie.
4) I did see two other entries somewhere though, people posted their mileage,
seemingly, in response to someone elses question.....
and someone other than you told them, to "do a topic search" ...too!
The top entry
for "What'* your gas mileage"
is...... Randman1'* ..... "Porting and polishing of heads"...
followed by at least 17 replies on the subject of porting. Half of those, were Kudos.
and that was just the first of three pages, for the topic.
What has that got to do with the searched topic?
They didn't even mention, the mileage factor.
(This post, didn't make it to #1, and it matches the search syntax exactly
The object of a search engine is to return posts, that are relevant to the search topic.
this engine, isn't even in the ballpark.
And I'm no newbie at search engines.
I was a webmaster for a foreign car site for better than five years.
