jerk in a prius said to me while I was filling up with diesel" ha, not so smart to drive a diesel now, ass wipe."

of course he had two, count them two popped collar shirts and enough cologne on to kill a herd of bison... soooooo I decided to make his day a little more difficult for him and de-cored 2 of his valve stems before driving off....of course he didn't see my license plate and it was at a gas station I never use...

I use a fuel credit card, saves me about $375 a year....in fact today I just got a free $100 fuel card because I have so many points. (Speedway!!)

I filled up today (8.4gal) for $40....got 24.9mpg....100% city driving....not too bad.

jerk was wearing two collared shirts with the collars popped, enough cologne to kill a herd of bison and had his iPhone out in the open on his belt.

I like carrying random crap in my trunk.... I just soo happened to have a roll of shrink wrap in my trunk... (from a last shenanigan run)....I guess he went in to use the bathroom or to primp his hair.. 5 minutes was enough for me to wrap his car to the fuel pump... bwhahahaha



$20 used to fill half a tank, now it takes me $46 to do so

Personaly I think a lot of mileage claims are like fishing stories...

My brokers SDL has never done much better either, actualy slightly worse than mine but she has a mega lead foot. She has owned it since almost new and has never gotten much more than 420 out of a tank. I get about 450ish.
