    I found this article and thought I would share it. I think most of the things found in this article have been discussed in various threads, but tips on saving gas is always worth the repeat.

    THanks for sharing!

    I'd like to add one of my own gas saving summer suggestions....

    Make fewer trips to the beer distributor, stock pile your beer and tell your friends to bring their own!!

    Unfortunately, gas prices alone will cause you to drink more beer. So - make sure you stock pile PLENTY to calm your nerves. :D

    Not much. Toyota bed mat, Toyota step bars, tinted windows, Toyota seat covers, Toyota all-weather mats, quart of Wild Turkey in the glove box, KelTec PT3AT in the center console, backseat full of old speeding tickets
    UH-oh! That article sez to stay away from premium fuel unless you drive a high performance vehicle. I can see the scathing e-mails from some in this group now.


    Now, where's that damned horse......THERE HE IS! GET HIM!
