I remember once doing my math - I jumped with joy then realised I forgot to reset the trip meter when filled up her tank --- hahaha beat myself for it

80 MPG? He's either taking a bit of "poetic license" with his ad, or there's a crack pipe involved (not unheard of in some parts of Denton)...

I think Roger hit the nail on the head, and the guy forgot to reset his trip meter. 40 MPG is a lot closer to reality.

I am so glad that I wasn't the only one thinking this guy was high on something, as soon as I read that part of the ad I Stopped reading altogether. What a bunch of horse ****.

Peace

Well, it ain't the gas they're selling down here, but it could be the fumes.

Maybe his commute to work is down hill, both ways. I know my father's walk to work was 10 miles uphill, both ways. during the depression, in winter, when he was 6yrs old, to help put his little brother through kindergarten
