The HCHII had a hard day today.
The gas station I have filled up at for years shut down this weekend. And ran out of gas last week. Not wanting to get the grud from there tanks and knowing they were in trouble I stopped buying gas from them before the last drops were pumped. And all they have ever sold is real gas.
Being lazy like I am. I ran the HCHII down to sucking vapor. Really Vapor. LOLOLOL she died as I rolled up to a pump. One of those worthless political corn squeezin pumps. Sophie looked like a poor dog going to the Vet sick knowing it wouldn't come home. And then I did it. I poisoned her with E10. I felt so sorry for the poor HCHII.
The 45 mile drive in to work was Hell on the poor car. I don't have the SGII in the HCHII. But the poison in her tank was very evident. MPG dropped like a rock. She idled poorly, putting her into glide was painful. Idle stop was bad,,, rough rough rough. Engine refires after getting it into a glide were very hard and unnerving.
Bottom line I should have been in the 61 to 63 mpg range for the drive in this morning. Conditions were perfect. Of course before Honda put there stupid damn flashes on the car and all but made sure I wont be buying anymore of there products. It would have been a very high 68+ mpg run. So todays drive in with fresh poison in her tank was good for 52 mpg. Coming home with temps flirting at 100F I did not fire the A/C up went with cross flow windows down part way and fresh air from dash vents. Fought a head wind and got 44 mpg.
The HCHII is not going to like the corn squeezin's. And on top of that I am going to start getting a lot of private seat time with her. The wife was asked to retire last month. And she is going to exhaust all employment options in Okmulgee before she goes back to the Tulsa market. So as I get to stretch the legs of the HCHII and not have to share seat time with the wife and her mpg destroying ways. I have to find a new local supply of real gas. While there are retailers here that do sell real gas. They are not the kind of folks I really care to do business with. I would by it possible from Ske Alaneedsabath if I could pay at the pump. Man does that dude and his store stink. I work with **** pumps from time to time. And this dude makes that small like a bed of rose's. Then there's the dude that owns a A/C company and always has a hand in a local quicky to loose money on purpose. And does sorry A/C work to boot. Then there is the local retired dude that has a two pump stand. Never know when he will be there. He's working up to be a car wash owner. So I hope I can find somebody around work that will have real gas. And for the record. That link folks are posting is not always up to date.
Now the poor MZ3 gets to be driven by the wife and will get poisoned with the idiot college boy fuel. And she wont go to any of the local stations that sell real gas.
Isn't ones motoring life grand!!!!!
