    Loads of fun, that.

    Grrr!

    I must admit to having similar fun when I used to drive my M578 "Cherry Picker"

    LMFAO

    My car has very long doors, making it next to impossible to open them in the tight ****ing parking spaces around San Diego. When I lived there, I frequently had to put my convertible top down just to get out of/into the car.

    Too much truck for the engine.
    That 7.3 power stroke is the best engine ever made. With the super chips tuner I can add 80 HP w/ 115 ft lbs more torque at the push of a button.

    The stock exhaust has been cut out and a straight 3" pipe has been installed without a muffler (it has 3 10 degree bends instead and is quiet until you romp on it) which added 40 horses (stock had the pipe necked down to a 1" x 3" oval at the firewall) and a reusable foam air cleaner all of which gives it 3 MPG better than stock.

    It's more to do with the long wheel base.... let's see anyone load 4,000 lbs on a Caddy. (my bet... it would ride like the springs were bottomed out.)

    Funny, that with just a chip, you -added- as much power/torque as a Prissy-us -has-.

    I have 2.5" true duals, with gutted mufflers. No idea what it did to the mileage.

    With a diesel, it's all about how much air you can pump through them... add fuel and that gives you the horse power.

    I have a buddy that has a Prius... he hates it, his wife made him buy it.

    95 Mercury Cougar, about 20 or so mpg as far as I can tell. Been driving the car for 11 years now, so I have gotten my moneys worth. Stupid check engine light has been on for years now, and everytime I get something "fixed" in regards to that light, it just pops back on again. At some point soon, this car is going to die on me, and that will be a sad day.

    '98 Toyota Corolla stick shift. Just had to put in a new clutch after teaching a teen to drive a stick, but that sucker's got years left in her. I love my little car.
