Another thing about throttling back, The way home was pretty slow for Me Paul Jeff and Jeff, becasue of Jeff's blown trans he could only go in 3rd gear at about 55-60mph, The 9-3 was getting 33mpg. Once we hit a place that Jeff knew had to get back from me and paul starting goign a little faster, just crusing with traffic anywhere between 70-80. I averaged 30mpg the whole trip back. That is a record for me. So another good reason to throttle back is the gas savings, expecially with the prices climbing like they are.

And I think I had a enough close calls friday night for a little while.
