if you head toward WV from manassas, about 45-60 minutes of driving will get you 3.29 for 93 :P worth it? ehhhh...

3 gallons to get there? 18/25 MPG = 54/75 miles?? do you live in a mineshaft??

That was an old quote you pulled up there. It is 3.40 now, better than before but not super cheap.

It is time to fill up again, I just got 20 mpg. This new motor and super short jdm six speed doesn't help the mpg. I am also in the process of finishing the tune so I should see a little better mpg.

I'll probably do that soon too. The near future doesn't seem to be harboring any crazy weather. To think this is the year I finally get Blizzak tires, and for what?

Back on topic. My car turned 2 today (2 years since purchase) and turned over the 40k mile mark this morning on way to work.

dont feel bad man.. I did the same thing. Bought a gnarly set of winters and threw em on my factory wheels... just to have them sit in my dining room with less than 1500mi on em.

I really wanted to see how the beast would do in some snow. I mean, I hate snow really... but gnarly tires make it worth it lol.

At least you had the common sense to take them back off. I've been running mine since the beginning of December. With 60 miles to work daily and having to make two long highway trips to NC and to SC on two different weekends for the holidays, the tread has worn down to around 9/32 on all tires.

That's it, it's just making me mad now thinking about it...they're probably coming off this weekend.
