Ford is Funny

I can picture W saying this:

"People got to have trucks," said Corinna Sadler, Internet sales manager at Frederick Motor Co. "We've got to do something to keep them in their trucks, and Ford's addressing it."


Some interesting MPG tips:

"As a rule of thumb, each five miles per hour over 60 is like paying an additional 20 cents per gallon of gas," Mr. Harrington said.

In Cali prices, I'm paying about $4.40... every morning. ACK!

"Another tip is to avoid idling. Today's cars do not need to be warmed up like the vehicles in the past and no more than 30 seconds of idling on winter days is needed, Mr. Harrington said. "The best way to warm up a vehicle is to drive it," he said.

Something else I do wrong...

"Unneeded weight caused by using a trunk as an additional storage area also decreases mileage, Mr. Harrington said. "

Subwoofers don't count though, right?
