    You see a headline containing "P&G" and your first thought is Pulse and Glide. The article is about Proctor and Gamble. :p

    You drop off your car pooler, Fas to the blind junction at the end of his road and a truck is in front, wait until truck has cleared the junction, get out and push your 3,492 lb vehicle to the end so you can see if it's clear before daring to start the ICE :D

    You get 75k miles out of a set of tires rated for 45k and get over 100k on a set of brake pads

    You can see your breath inside the car, because you don't want to take heat from the engine by putting on the cabin heater.

    You're watching the Indy 500 and rooting for the guy using the least fuel to win.

    Congrats Mr. Rossi!

    Or...... ya got a reliable car! Our Hyundai Accent has 135,000 on the same pads & my wife( a careful, but not efficient driver) drove 75,000 miles in very tough stop & go traffic. Think the hyper-milers are getting 200,000+ miles on their pads.
