The crazy Eurpeans do it all the time. Cut the man some slack he does not know that the tow haul button disables the 4 cyl feature on that new truck yet.

that or he will drive himself crazy trying to figure out how the gas mileage is staying the same, and the power from all 4 cylinders is just like driving a V-8, hmmmm?

Hi Gang,
Just parked the blue noodles after a couple of weeks of traveling and camping. Had to wash off about a ton of mud.
We started off at the dream cruise for two days and went from there to the NASCAR race at MIS. What a delay that was. Picked up Grace and headed to Charlotte,MI. for the state WBCCI rally. Rained everyday we were there.
The only excitment we had, was a tornado touched down about three miles away form the fairgrounds.
Has anybody come up with a definite date yet for the LPPI rally?
Oh yeah, I'll challenge anybody with the blue noodles to see who can go the farthest without stopping for fuel. We can make it to the flying"J" at the Georgia/Florida state line.

Sorry Ralphie!
I have been working 23 straight days and they are usually 13 hour shifts. I sleep, eat, shower and work.
Yeah, the first weekend in October. We can call it "The LPPI Fall Ball!"

The fact that Lou is only running on 4 cylinders explains a lot of things.

Did he also save gas as a kid by riding in the short bus?
Now you are giving away all of my secrets!

Yours might be 6 grand....
Mine ain't....
Plus the engine is smart enough to know when it should run on 4 or 8 cylinders....
I have owned 5 new Dodge pickups. That is when I was running on 4 of my 8 cylinders!

Sure, I knew that....
It says so in the owner's manual that I have read cover to cover...
The problem I had was working the "Dome Override" button! Believe it or not!

It looks like it will be the first weekend in October. I would really like to go to Walnut Hills this time.
The reason you can make it that far on a tank is because you are hauling enough fuel to warrant a MazMat license!

That is too funny, it took me some time to figure that out as well, but once I grasped the concept it came in handy with the kids when it is late.

Well, I had a "Dome Override" button in the Safari. This one is REALLY different! I will show you when you guys come over on Sunday.

I just did a randome check of this thread because it's been too quiet. Did someone say "Party at Lou's on Sunday?"

Arrgghh! I've stopped getting notification emails that you guys keep posting to this thread. In fact I've stopped getting notification emails about all AirForums threads I am subscribed to. Haven't received a single one since Aug 25th. Darn @#$%^&* AirForums ain't reliable anymore.

I know what you mean about the notification. I had to unsubscribe and then subscribe to the thread again to get notification again. ARGHHH!
The "party" is Dave, Rhonda and the kids. You and Lorrie are more than welcome to come on over. We are doing burgers and dogs and stuff on the grill.
As a matter of fact, anyone that wants to stop by can stop by. My door is always open to all of you. Although, Dave and Joe are two of my favorites!
Heck, come on over just to say "Hi" if you want. I miss you guys!
