Long Way To Go After The Light Comes On

December 11, 2009 about Toyota Camry

I have a 1999 4-cyl Camry. My light came on today, and I drove about 50 more miles, mix of city at rush hour and highway non-rush hour. When I finally filled up, it took 16.99 gallons, which I thought was funny because I always thought I had a 17 gallon tank. Looked it up after I pumped, and it turns out it's 18.5 gallons. I still had a gallon and a half in the tank. I probably could've gone 90-100 miles from the time the light went out till I finally ran out of gas.

Me too :) I wish they'd stop closing down gas stations! Btw mine has a 70-litre tank which I think is just over 15 gallons.

Yes, that's my union hall. Personally, I think the sign is silly (especially when the UAW is attempting to oigrnaze the transplants). However, the sign was democratically voted on and approved by the owners—the union membership.Keep in mind that this is private property, so, just like your driveway, the property owner can decide who or what they want there. What would you do if I pulled my fifth-wheel trailer into your driveway and set up camp? I have a feeling you would ask me to leave and call the police if I didn’t. Is this sign really any different? The sign might be misguided, but the membership is well within their property rights that this country was founded on.Obviously, car/suv sales will dictate the future, and not some silly sign. A lot of the poor quality of the past had been eliminated by the Big 3; however, the perception of poor quality still exists. Buy what you want—just make sure that you shop ALL the models before you buy. You might be pleasantly surprised how the intense competition of the last few years has elevated the quality of all of the companies’ products. Remember—the consumer is the king. Use your power wisely.

That depends on the model and year. My 1997 Outback wagon owner's muanal specifically calls for premium. My 2008 Outback wagon owner's muanal does not. The turbocharged engines require premium fuel.References : I own the cars, and bought them new I have the muanals.

Its hard to believe that this hulmbe servant of God has gone after serving his purpose of life in such a short span. He challenged many of us that in his situation, suffering from heamophilia he still had time to share Christ with others. On a hospital bed, this hulmbe servant would still speak about Christ to another patient. Indeed he did not live long to accomplish his vision in Pakistan but he has inspired many of us and we will continue praying for his family, Church and friends to carry on where he has stopped.

in Smrt Mama’s archives at Smrt Lernins and came across her tongue in cheek post on the Archetypes of the Homeschooling Mom which had me examining myself and my beliefs on hoesmchooling.  I also had a bit of fun labeling
