However, it beats the 8 months I commuted in my Z71 Silverado when Unleaded was $4.75/gallon.

But to counter that, we do often drive a hell of a lot more than the guys that pay per liter of gas what we do for a gallon.

As I hardwire my detector in the next couple days i learned something new about my detector. The rear facing sensor is only for laser. Thats weird.. how often do you get lasered from behind? Doesnt make much sense. The issue came up because with my visor clip mount, the top sensor is mashed into the visor and is useless.

It happens. I had CHP do it to me on 680 in Fremont/Milpitas. They will sit on the other side of the center barricade with their car pointed in the wrong direction at one of the breaks in the barricade and as you pass (can't see them when approaching) they nail you in the rear with laser.

Yeah, I said it that way on purpose.

I was invited into an entirely new world on the way home. Going about 60 mph. Cars in front of my took the first ramp, i had 1000 ft free ahead of me before my ramp. Pushed into it, I don't know if it dropped 1 or 2 gears. It was pulling nice. Then I stepped much deeper, it instantly got faster and faster the further i pressed. It was incredible. Then the Brembos at the ramp bringing me to 40mph long before neccessary. Previous i said this is most fun around town. Well thats wrong, its more of a freeway car than a city car.

Funny thing about the gas, around 2 years ago i almost got a low mileage SRT charger.. the old one, but for me the payment 550-600 plus insurance plus gas put it right around $1000 to $1100 monthly and i decided to pass.
Still though i would say i am not doing much better payment wise.

MPG at 80mph is 27.7 all day long, at 70mph I have seen 33-36 mpg.
Just drove to tahoe last weekend from SJ and on one tank made the trip and another 80 miles driving around the lake without a fill up, this was with moderately aggressive driving the whole way.

Thanks man! I love the VW, but I am getting a v8 for my next car for a change...possibly a 5.0 in that smurf blue.

If only I could get over how common the cars are plus the interior. I guess with some tasteful exterior work it would be unique.

Are mustangs really that popular in Qatar?

Did the hardwire video yesterday. Superbee's are a bit trickier than R/T's, as they have less wiring choices to tap into.

I was impressed with the build quality of the new-gen Charger/300C's, but really only liked the Chargers. Not sure if I'm a fan of the badging - but the SRT8's look really good.

Just wished that Chrysler would get off its ass and update the gearbox to the ZF 8-speed.
