This past week end was a trip to the great state of N.H., in "normal mode", where the bear run "free" from taxes and the deer are hit by tumbling pieces of granite. I was overly impressed when arriving at the parking lot of a well nourishing, food filled fast food restaurant and realized my avg. mileage was 32.7, to my surprise, when I checked the engine, the six mice running on the elastic band had been increased by not only one, but "two" fellow speedsters, thus increasing my mouse power by a whopping 2%, which I can only surmise must have been the increase of gas usage and the decrease of avg. mileage, because I was getting a massive even 33. m.p.g. prior to this increase of neck snapping power. After being satisfyingly poisoned with fast food I switched to "sport mode" when leaving the parking lot, and zoomed on my way. The m.p.g. dropped dramatically when driving through a small town, but the responsiveness of the mice was very impressive, especially when dogging the pot holes, few as they were but still there....Eight brass monkeys from the ancient sacred crypts of Egypt...
