    Typical Otter weather. Sad. The hail is normally bigger. The parking lot here in Wheat Ridge is a river right now...

    You sure you’re not around Chicago?? F it has rained, lightning and hailed hard every day since Thursday — and don’t mean to offend anyone, but Chicago area is where you would put the tube if you were to give the world an enema.

    Was like 95 to 100 all the way up here.

    Got like the best fuel mileage I think I've ever gotten. Which is really freaking bizarre cause usually with new tires, especially the bite these have, you lose like a 1/2 until they wear.

    Wrench did replace the other tensioner and pulleys though while I was at home. But I just can't believe that worn tensioner, it had no free spin at all, put that kind of drag on the engine.

    Cause it was hot, and the fan clutch was engaged a lot today, and it was windy, and I mean I got some pretty freaking great fuel mileage.

    Like at this point I've probably burned 10 to 15 gallons less than I usually do.

    Can that be?

    No offense intended. Double check your math. :D

    If the math checks out.... Sherlock Holmes said “when you have excluded the impossible whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”

    Tail wind?

    Not to jinx you but my race engines always run best just before blowing up.

    I looked up here and thought, "Man, when I was 10, I'd climbed right up there."

    Fortunately I'll be 12 next year.
