I don't know what it is lately. When I 1st got into diesel performance, all I wanted to do is build my truck to be fast & roll coal. Now I've noticed all I do is monitor MPG. I drive to work monitoring different speeds or take different routes & analyze which make maximum MPG. & I don't do it to save money, really. @ 1st, my wife & I were sorta having a contest to see if Heavy or her '07 V6 Mustang went longer without having to fill up. Of course her car won, but technically I get better MPG by volume. Anyways, we gave up the contest a while ago, but here I am, still figuring out literally by pencil what I'm getting for fuel mileage.
What's going on here? Have I lost my will to stomp on imports & mildly modified Mustangs? I'm never getting into the whole "going green" movement, but sometimes the way I try to save fuel, I almost feel like my arch nemesis; the insidious tree huggers.
I still have all my "go fast" bolt-ons, but can't remember the last time I've flipped the TW into street or X. Don't remember the last time I've blown chimney, or even lit up the tires. Then again, I've been using the train horns more often than not to get people's attention as I'm still under the belief that when I do see chimney, it's dollar signs out the window
. Have I turned into an old fart? Am I 29 going on to 60? What's happening to me???
