    What type of gas mileage does everyone get here in Medford? My gas mileage is pretty sad. I get around 220-240 miles on a tank (refill about 13.5 gallons). Another question, is there a difference between a sway bar from one manufacturer to the other?

    I get exactly the same miles on a tank.

    Some sway bars are adjustable, and some aren't. Also, some swaybars are hollow, which saves a bit of weight. Most aren't.

    Yeah I get the same gas milesage too! It's sad that my gas mileage got worse when I went from a V-8 Corvette to a 4 cyl Subaru!

    Biggs, Wade, Bob - your gas mileage sucks. I average about 22-24mpg. It is a lot of freeway driving, but it's freeway driving in between Grants Pass and Glendale (Which my record is 11min btw) with those three passes and lots of curves, usually when I'm really late. Southern Oregon touge LOL. The lowest mileage I ever got was 16 and that was one night filled with races and backwoods cornering. I fill up usually at the 76 on the north end of Grants Pass w/92 octane.

    Hey, it's not my fault, it's all these damn pedestrians and traffic signals and f*@#*ing 20mph 24/7 school zones. This whole town is a 24/7 school zone now. I have to head out Dead Indian at least once a day now to let off steam, so it takes it's toll on the gas mileage.

    --I'm in... That stretch is a blast. My new wheels and tires combined with all my suspension mods turn those 50mph corners into, well- I probably shouldn't say I haven't timed that stretch specifically, but I'm heading up to Roseburg this afternoon and maybe I'll remember. Good conditions.... your time may be in danger! [probably not- if you were going all out on the straights]

    Nothing wrong at all with BS topics. I've lived in GP for a long time and have never actually been to the grower's market. I might check it out one of these weekends. I've got to work 12-8:30 tommorow but my Sunday looks pretty open if anyone wants to meet up. Maybe install some parts? My modding is probably going to go on hold for a while until I get the 429 in the T-Bird. Anybody know anybody who wants to sell me their Ford C6 tranny?

    the_black_one - black wagons on the touge sounds good, but a highlander-ish sword battle mentioned in an earlier post would be cooler. I found my implement of death - http://www.x-entertainment.com/artic...erffencing.wmv

    my goodness i could not have said it better myself. despite seeing the cops tag peopel during my lunch break every week, i got pulled in a damn 20 at all times for going a whopping 33. wasnt even trying to speed, but i was in a red bmw, a kid, and it was the end of the month. busted. 6th time and i get a ticket finally. i go so slow around Ashland now and i bottle it all up and let it out on dead indian or old siskiyou or whatnot.
    im pretty busy this weekend, got two soccer games, one in klamath so it looks liek my mileage will drop a bit..

    anybody been to the karting thing at the family fun center in medford or the slick kart track? they any good/expensive, etc?

    I've never been karting before, sounds fun though!

    I will most likely go to the market thing on sat, then I have to help the fiancee's dad do some yard work. Sunday I dont really have anything planned though. I was hoping to order some exhaust, but I am saving all my money to be able to move out within a month.

    Once we do get stable, I will definatly need some help with the parts though!

    I will probably go have a beverage tonight or tomorrow night, most likely JDs
