New Stellatis inline 6 3.0 engine isn’t much more efficient than a V8
Check out the new Corvette review! https://youtu.be/Dn6gmBQUTdg
Popular YouTube channel has a new Hummer and it’s causing so much controversy. It broke down on the middle of the road and people are complaining about how long it takes to charge. Hilarious stuff.

It’s just a trend to have the make of the car in bold letters across the tailgate. This trend will end in a few years and they’ll start putting the normal model of the car in a small badge on the tailgate.

Maybe they could partner to make cheap EVs in a quicker way. But I don’t know what else they would benefit each other from

I’m on this Facebook group called “Unappreciated survivors” about ordinary cars that somehow made it though the years without being beaten up.

And Chrysler conquest

That car is pure evil lol. So a 7 passenger sedan? Haha. That is so painfully badly made…

LOL. Only in China.
Have you seen the Chinese knockoff of the Toyota Tundra? They call it the Tundar, because they have no shame nor concept of copyright or intellectual property.
I was watching a video on that electric truck by Canoo. I have no faith in these electric start-ups because most of them are scams and those that aren’t struggle for years to actually produce anything. But Canoo had a neat idea: the truck has a 6 foot bed and a 2 foot extension slides out from underneath so you have extra length when you need it. It’s so simple I can’t believe no other truck manufacturer has thought of this.

That is some good engineering from Canoo. Ram made it halfway with the swing out tailgate. But this design is so fancy. Like the GMC Envoy XUV but different. Price will probably be too much sadly

The last Pontiac ever made was a 2010 G6 in a base model fleet spec. The car was reported to be totaled and probably is sitting in a junkyard or is crushed. Imagine seeing a boring Pontiac in a junkyard and never knowing that it was the last Pontiac ever made… https://gmauthority.com/blog/2022/10/heres-what-happened-to-the-very-last-pontiac-ever-built/
Saab meanwhile has a much more interesting story for their last model https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a27813994/saab-9-3-nevs-auction/
And here’s a video about Saturn because I can’t find any info about its last car produced https://youtu.be/8PBGgggomP0

Needs to know Hebrew.
My 2005 Explorer got better gas mileage recently. EPA rated it for 15 MPG, but this tank the on-board meter says 18.5, tank calculations say 18.71. I changed stations in-between, so there’s some chance of a pump shutoff difference. That’s also mostly not with Highway driving.
The tank went up to 19.1 on the highway for a short stint, and it stayed around 18.6 - 18.8 until near the end of the tank.
I’ve modded the car a few ways since I was last here (details below.) However, I also found a way to shut the injectors off some of the time, which helps.
There are 2 ways you can temporarily shut injectors off in this car. One is to go into 3rd gear when going at least 35 MPH, and probably downhill; I already knew that one. More recently, I found that by using Cruise Control at a minimum of 40 to 50 MPH (it depends on the road grade and maybe other factors, downhill is more favorable) and by holding the “Coast” button after Cruise Control is on, sometimes the injectors will shut off. This is helpful when you don’t want to slow down as much as 3rd Gear would do.
Mods:
Air Dam (was only put on within the last 25 of 290 miles, so it doesn’t count for much in this tank.)
Block Heater, 600w (yes, I use it regardless of temperature - it’s still cheap enough)
Grill Block (doesn’t block everything, but it blocks most of it.)
Roof Rack Delete
Tires: 45 PSI Front / 49 PSI Rear
Warm Air Intake
The Air Dam is floor mat that’s screwed on to the original and smaller air dam. It goes down to 5 inches above the road surface, and it’s not very rigid, so I probably can’t run over a raccoon carcass and pull off the dam.
The Warm Air Intake is just clothes dryer ducting going from the airbox to the exhaust manifold near the oil filter. It helps the car warm up a bit faster, and air intake temps don’t seem to go beyond about 110 most of the time. It’s supposed to help MPGs a bit, but I don’t expect it to help a whole lot.
I want to add rear wheel skirting and a partial kammback, and maybe side skirting. I can probably get over 20 MPG in this cheap rig even without changing the stock engine fan.

Found in MN. I’m so jealous. Two toned paint. So 90s
@Barry Tone
Sweet I’m glad the efforts are paying off, especially in city driving. I suppose messing with cruise control and 3rd gear is only useful on large downhill roads which sadly I don’t have. But it’s interesting to use the cruise control coast button where you are able to, now I’m curious if my car turns off the fuel injectors while coasting.
Once winter hits, the warm air intake will pay off greatly.
@14Fan
Good choice. If I had the space, I’d get a Corvette for sure. Either a C5, C6, or C7. Those are simply iconic

C8 is nice and all and I would pick it over any Italian sportscar (the German and Japanese sportscars are cooler though)
But it’s impossible to compete with the classical Corvette body shape that I dreamed of as a kid

The C7 would be my pick.
I gave up on getting a new vehicle a while ago. The few good options are just too expensive right now. However, I did what I should have done years ago and bought snow tires - Blizzaks on decent looking black wheels. I’ll have them installed in about a week and see how much difference better rubber makes in winter’s worst.

Great minds think alike! The C6 was iconic in beauty and power
the new 2013 Pirus is out. I love how they make it look unique without putting a massive grille on it. It has the exact same shape as the old model, like it’s just embracing the fact that it’s a Prius. Gets 57 mpg at max. Not as good as the iconic original Insight though.
the back-end looks silly, with the trendy bold lettering across the liftgate.
@14Fan
my cousin met Chris Buescher a few days ago because he works for a company that sponsors Chris (Fastenal)
@kleptomage
Yes I’m thinking about it too, I’ve got 20,000 miles on my tires and it’s a little iffy on the roads after only 2 inches of snow
