Here in Western NY, prices for the three grades of gas jumped up on Friday from

$3.49/$3.59/$3.69

The thought of buying a motorcycle just became more appealing to me....

A few of our gas stations in Michigan have capped their prices at 2.99 for regular for at least the weekend. It'* nice, when you compare.

Who is the extra driver Bob? You mean an extra vehicle for you to drive daily or what? Or is your kid learning to drive?

Anyway I tried keeping it under 5,000RPM for a day and couldnt do that. I have been holding out on redlining it all the time though. I used to do that every day.

I visually do that with my boost guage. I watch it while driving and if going up hill, I'll drop it out of over drive to keep it out of boost. I drive like a trucker now...

Andrew..You'll lose sight of your speedo before you leave the driveway.

While it was pretty funny.. OSG may have a possible fix for you. Put something under the pedal so you can't use it.

After giving Murdock a hard time..I decided to try and stay less than 0 on the ole boost gauge. So far it'* working great. Now I just need to try and get that second mile on the car before boost happens.
