Hi - I saw your post about better mileage at hi speeds. Your optimum will be the slowest speed you can run the transmission is in its highest gear without lugging the engine. This is why highway numbers generally are better than city. The point about lower speed being better is due to wind resistance, since it takes 2x the effort to increase 10 mph at highway speeds

Hi Fran and Marcia, I am checking in to see how you are all doing, I have been so very busy, have the best garden ever! I have 2 tomato plants that are 7 feet tall, I don;t have them planted where they get the awful hot afternoon sun, I believe that is why they are so big and loaded with tomatoes. Well I best get my tail out and water, we need rain really badly at my house, God Bless you and Marcia, Looking forward to hearing from you! TOL! Gloria

"Too bad they didn't continue the trend from back then to now.MPG's could be much higher than they are now." Actually, for a little while, they did just that, but stopped doing that around 2003. If you remember, some of the Dodges, GMs, Fords, VW, Toyotas, Hondas, Nissans, GEOs, Mitsubishis and others were getting 36 to 48 mpg and more. Some were getting 50 to 55 mpg as late as the mid to late 1990's and up to 2002-2003 with the Tercel and Echo. They don't want us to have vehicles on the road getting 70 to 150+ mpg in this country, but we could have had them already. They stop it from happening.

"GLAD some of them will still...better "Wake Up" before its totally too late. " Not gonna happen as too many are too damned stupid in this country that vote for someone like him, Pelosi, Boehner, Reid, McConnel and others repeatedly as they do.

"Talk about the extreme "Gov't stupidity" , this ranks right up there in the overall scheme of things!!" It's not just government, it's Obama, the Democrats, the eco-nazis, the the Republicans, the EPA, and really, too many of the people. This could have all been done right, but they don't have anyone up there in Washington from Obama on down to Pelosi, Reid, Boehner or McConnell who do things right, nor among corporate leaders, the environmentalists [ I'M a greenie mind you myself and greener than a good many of the rest are!], religious leaders, instructors, school administrators, etc.

I'm probably doing to make my usual hurricane prediction earlier this year than normal as well. I'm generally more right than most of the pros. LOL! Even most of the weather forecasters do a lousy job compared to me or some of the old timers here in this country.

By-the-way, most likely we’re all going up on gas prices. We had just started a downward trend here, but that’s over now. We had three or four stations down to $3.13 a gallon, now they're back up to $3.33 and $3.35 a gallon. One station in Miami is already $3.89 a gallon. I'd get gassed up now as it's going up more. I wish I could have told everyone yesterday, but I couldn't make it online other than to post prices in the morning. Sorry. You’ll see prices 15 to 35 cents a gallon higher there in your area soon. They won’t let it drop far when it does.

"SO....how can the Antarctic have so much MORE ice that several ice breakers got caught in it???" That's generally the area where it gets really cold, just like in the northern section of this country and Canada it's colder and around the poles. It happens most years and in many other years they had to make use of ice-breakers even more than this year, much more. Just like we generally see two to five days 35 degrees or colder here in this area. None this year. Even two days at 32 or colder is quite common, not even one. It's already hotter here than the last four and more than normal. We'll have an extended or hotter summer here this year, and most likely a busier hurricane season as well.
