Ford II : Hmm, you're right, the link does now work, didn't before..hmm.

 Not to nit-pick your lovely ad, but you do know the only difference between premium and reguaklr gas is that you're paying more?

 You don't get better fuel economy, you don't get less wear and tear on the engine - it's a myth by Big Oil that premium gas is better for hte gas, so they can rmap up their profits more.

 Don't believe me?

okay I think we agree, high compression engine cars make better use of premium than not.
So my 2.0 liter 227hp turbo makes use of premium.

yeah, if you're squeezing 227hp out of a 2.0L turbo, you definitely need premium gas or you'll reduce the lifetime of your engine.


high-boost turbos are going to cause 87 octane fuel to detonate, and there is only so much that the engine computer can do to compensate for that. at best, you get reduced power output due to timing retard or the ECU won't let you get full boost pressure. at worst, the ECU decides to run your fuel mix rich, and you end up replacing your cat early, or the engine just slowly rips itself apart.

If the left had their way, you wouldn't have that problem Animal. You wouldn't be allowed to own a truck that required such expensive tires. :)

BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO. Had 'em siped too, gives a bit better traction on
dirt/ice/snow. They wear a bit better with that as well.

They should last a while, and they're good tires... but gawd damn a bike is
lookin real nice right now (like, a ktm 690 or something similar).

Yeah, I'm looking myself at 2 specific bikes right now. I'm either thinking the Kawasaki KLR 650, which is street-legal and off-road as well (dual purpose) or the Suzuki Volusia ( nice riding bike) - just now sure which to go with.

Yes, they're called "goggles". My helmet even has places for them to go.

Here in the rural UK the automobile is just as related to freedom, if not more so. In the UK we have less freedoms so the ability to change location is very important.

Just what exactly makes you think I wouldn't understand the connection between vehicles and the notion of freedom, after all freedom is just a notion.

I drive in excess of 100000 (yes one hundred thousand) miles every year. If I had to do it in a british type SUV I'd definately close the company.

wouldn't expect you to understand.



you sound like a californian.

no matter what i say about my commute this morning, still suffering the effects of mild heat exhaustion, it was still nice to not be chained to a car. driving sucks, and i wish there were more places in this country one could live without having to rely on a car.
