Cool

Thanks for having me. In addition to my g2 I could bring my disconnected Enginer phev kit. If Truck does paint or body work I could use an estimate.

Since I can't compete for lowest mileage, I think I'll go for most modified. I may have to add another or two. Maybe a new boat tail before the meet

@ Cobb: No, Truck is not a mechanic by current profession. But a (multi-) Insight owner, car enthusiast, off-roader, and all around good-guy. His garage is more like an awesome man-cave than a body shop. Looking forward to finally meet you...in person...maybe...

This is a good problem to have. Red ones are rarer...DC traffic is guaranteed to put wear and tear on your clutch...bring the Red Rider. On the other hand, it would be great to have your MIMA car there too. Let's help you decide while at Mike D's.
(BTW, what's the plate on the silver gonna say? "80 MPG" ? "EZ80MPG" ? "MPGCHMP" ? "BESTMPG" ? "HIGHMPG")

I was worried that my summer was filling up fast with obligations, and passing by too quick, so this is nice to have two great meetups on the horizon. Maybe I'll try to squeeze in a "Tail of the Dragon" trip. Hmm

Hmmm, tough decision. I'm leaning toward the Glider for Mike's, I can run quicker and get great mpg's. It's missing an aero panel; so that's a good opportunity for the belly pan from Scott. Also, I think Jime wants to whoop me in the mpg rally, I gotta give him a run for his money

No lift at home, so maybe a trip to Trucks' for 'Red' and install my other belly panel.

As for the Gliders plate, lookin' like '9T-MPG' might suit. (I have 7NTY-MPG' on the back of 'Red').

btw: 1st trip UP the mountain to work with Silver, 88 mpg. Going back down is gonna be fun.

Default nor east coaster

So far so good with the IMA since returning from nor east coaster spring gambrill.
A few regens mostly from 8 mi daily commute without any highway charging and one regen on the way up walker over the mountain at Tinmouth.
SOC hangs in the middle constantly as the car wonders who is driving it every time it starts up.
I was planning another set of charge cycles a few weeks ago, but I think I just do some 100 mi highway trips instead to see if this new IMA behavior is solid enough.
Looking forward to seein all you folks ( or should I just say yall?) at Mikes place too.
