Filled her up with gas. Was nice seeing it at $3.86 a gallon for once. I'm in Canada so our usual price is around $5.25/gal.

Drove it to work and back. Since we were slow I played around with my phone's editing options for pictures and came up with this...

#ZorgFilter! Sexy snapshot there, man!


Filled in my license plate renewal forms to send out on payday. Eligible for that and driver's license both by mail this year.

Ordered the latest version of Michigan's Mackinac Bridge Plate. It's much more legible than the last version and I like novelty.

Finally got my hood to close but it's still a problem because it won't pop up right. I'm so afraid after I sell this car I'm going to want another Vic..

Why are you afraid of another Vic?

You could always get your Panther fix via one of the Mercury or Lincoln models...

Loc: I can see Detroit from here!
Almost ran it out of gas yesterday.

I drove to do errands yesterday because I was really low on gas and we were going to Sams Club anyway where I normally fill up. Then after we are down the street, my mom informs me she has an appointment 20-some miles away in 20 min. The dash was indicating 45 miles to empty, so I went for it. But I had to get her there on time, which required driving much faster and more aggressive than I normally do and it chugged that 45 miles to empty by time I got there (it determines that number based on fuel level and cumulative average MPG). But we made it on time. I then went in search of gasoline and joy of joys I got stuck in traffic, bumper-to-bumper traffic outside the mall. So I have the dash beeping, fuel gage blinking, telling me zero miles to empty (for a few miles at that point) and NO bars on the gas gage, and I can see the gas station but can't get there. It sputtered a bit trying to go up the driveway to the gas station. Gas was like $0.25/gal more there, but I had no choice so I put $10 in it which got me a touch over 4 gallons which was 1 bar less than 1/4 tank and 80 miles to empty. So it was pretty much totally empty. Continued errands and filled it the rest of the way when we finally got to to Sam's Club, which took another 16 gallons.

I guess I'm replying to myself since it won't let me edit my last post.

Just changed the oil in it. 5200 miles on the last batch of MaxLife. It was a bit low, I've added 2 quarts since last change. So consumption is down a bit I suppose. Works out to be a quart in 2500 roughly.

As usual, I forgot to turn off the air suspension so it was a scramble to run back and open the trunk and flip the switch before it dropped all the way down. Thats always fun. Maybe I need to put a giant note on my floor jack to remind me before I lift the car.

This!

Sans wire loom. Pics of my tidy trunk lid when it's daylight out. Subtle change, but once that wire was pointed out to me, couldn't NOT see it.

Thanks 73vwTodd for the idea and the write-up!

Re-aimed my headlights because it appeared that they were up too high. Well now they're too low and are right about where I started before I got the aimer. They were better being excessively high, and no one ever flashed me (yet I still wonder if they were glaring).

I'm going to find a really flat area because the slope on my garage floor almost has those aimers at the extreme for the floor slope measurement. I probably goofed somewhere, but the way the lights are now have cut 90% of effective throw distance.

I'll redo everything tomorrow.

Replaced most of the dash lights with leds. Now I can see how fast I am going at night.

Ordered projector headlights, so now I will be able to see the road and the dash at night.
