Eighty Five Percent Increase in Fuel Mileage

I have a 1976 Dodge Motor Home that was getting 6 miles per gallon. Not good, with all the profit taking going around!

I side gapped my spark plugs and added 2 ounces acetone per 10 gallons of gas.

My fuel mileage went from 6 to 11.2 MPG, city driving. :)

Figuring an average of 3,000 miles a year at 2.30 false notes per gallon, that is 1,380 false notes. Of course, when spikes of 100 false notes per barrel of oil occur in the future, that increases to 2,460 false notes.

Your mileage may vary.

Hosed at the gas pump -- by your debit card?

If you use your debit card at a pump that does not require a PIN, the station regularly will block out an amount -- often $50 or $75 -- on your card. [MSN Money]

Let’s see, a bounced check is what, thirty bucks? For Hathaway, that’s about a 130% increase to fill up, provided only one check bounces, so big oil doesn’t get ripped off while ripping us off, and making a little extra change for their banking buddies?
