    Isn't it great to be disappointed with getting "only" 87 mpg? Good luck in division 'A'.

    Just back from getting gas. That was probably the most horrible, aggravating trip for gas I've had EVER.

    Didn't know where I was going per se - I knew what to look for, but had never been there before. Almost missed turn on way to store. Couldn't really optimize driving, because of hunting for sign.

    Then, my club card of course didn't scan, so I had to have the attendant re-set everything.

    I go to wash my windshield, only to find that while there is a squeegee, the bin had no cleaner or even water in it!

    Pump kicks off at 12 gals - I KNOW that I can put more in there. I go to squeeze gentle on the handle, and it starts bucking and kicking like mad. The handle also was raw metal, and digging into my hand. Finally get a low(er) fill rate, and it shuts off at 15 gals - I know that's not right either, it should have been 16, but I didn't feel like standing there all day as gas was already in the filler neck.

    I go pay, come back, and gas has sunk down into the tank. I leave, and it's like 9 stop signs to get out of the parking lot, which I have to go the LONG way around to get to a red light so that I can left turn because all the other exits were "ALL TRAFFIC MUST TURN RIGHT."

    Miss my turn on the way back and take a different street - get cut off by a taxi and catch all the red lights.

    I have to wait til I get home to combine gas receipts and get it posted to the log.

    Okay, my final is in. Poor fill boosted the results on this one - expecting the next one to be low.

    It's closed now. Just waiting on the system ;) to compute the numbers. Give me a day or two and I'll have it up.
