So the fact that my girlfriend and I have a Prius and a Jeep puts in perfect position, the best of both worlds.
Now at least I have ammo about why my Jeep isn't quite the global warmer it would seem to be.

Hey man, don't pay attention to these guys, they're just a bunch of e-thugs and they don't even know what they're talking about.

These guys should be more helpful. They know their stuff and treat newbies like you with greater respect. They helped me get about 5 more miles to the gallon in my jeep with a few simple tips. Sign up and start a thread here....

Wow.

You know, when you said that you'd had enough, and mrBlaine said that you'd be back? You've proved him right. You know that, right?

Here's a few things to remember:

I can say with great confidence (FYI...) that you can't brag about your physical size or toughness over the internet. It doesn't matter if it's actually true, bringing it up makes YOU seem like the one with the self esteem issues, and everyone will laugh at you. All you have here is the written word, and Smilies.

Use spell check. I've seen you spell write "millage" more times than I'd care to ever see again. It's spelled "mileage". You have a college degree. Get better.

Everyone here looks up to these "jerks" because they help make the stuff that we buy and they are experts of this domain. We also look up to them because they were here long before us, and will be here long after we're gone. They're also likely to be the guys bailing us out on the trail after we've done something stupid, and they'll be able to tell us how to do it better next time, if we just ask nicely. This all boils down to respecting your elders, you'll need their insight and experience someday.

Gentleman, and I say that with a bit of refrain due to a few of the previous posts. I haven't been on the forum that long, but it has helped me immensley and saved me quite a bit of change. Actually, that's not true, it just gets diverted to something else. Regardless, to the OP. Just one search for FUEL MPG returned 150 threads. Not to beat a dead horse, but before you go for your guns, think about what's being said. And as for the badgering of mr blaine and the such, he's a big boy and can fight his own battles...however, if you were the newb at a local shop, and there was someone that had been working there for years, no matter how gruff his answer would you still listen? Age, post count, join date, witty sigs aside...think about the experience that these guys are offering up. Respect is earned not given. my 2 cents. Take it or leave it.

And mr blaine...cut the guy some slack. If you scare him away now...he'll be no fun to anyone. j/k soda

Nah, now that I have my Jeep it's perfect.

When we wanna go somewhere boring and get 50mpg, we take the prius.

When we actually want to enjoy the experience of getting somewhere, or go somewhere interesting, we take my Jeep. Once summer comes and I can take the top off, I suspect I know which one I'll be in almost all the time.

This thread ceased being tech right at about the first post... closed. And Zanash2, running a higher octane gas in your TJ will not improve or even change your mpg... octane has nothing to do with that.

Getting Savvy...

When you have a choice, buy American.
