Without getting into details on the Interwebs, let's just say that there have been.......inconsistencies in their accounting practices. Not a good thing when you are claiming to be a charitable organization. Especially when the Wounded Warrior Project is one of said recipients. That's a great way to lose my support.

What's up all? I haven't been on here in nearly 2 weeks, and hardly on the comp at all during that span, as Kim, my fiance, came out here with me from Alabama after the holidays. She just flew back this morning though so suddenly I've more boredom time lol

2 1/2 months and about 4500 miles on the new Mazda 3 Skyactiv and I averaged 38-39 miles most of the 2000-2500 miles to/around/from Alabama, and it's been broken in to averaging around 32 in the city. Sooo sweet.

Oh, and went to Esther's Follies for the first time Friday night. We really enjoyed the show, it was a blast, and followed it up by catching the stand-up show at 9:30 next door in the Velveeta Room, went to Casino El Camino for some food, then back for the 11:30 stand-up. Great time for our first time down on 6th Street, and a sober night at that. Would've gotten a room and hit up some of the bars if I hadn't just gotten a dog lol

Awesome! I'm pretty impressed with mazda and this engine. Amazing what a little efficiency can do for a motor. Imagine how much power it would make if they tuned it for power

Just crank your engine to 14:1 compression, better mgmt system, direct injection etc....

Yeah and promptly get a piston or rod flying out the side of the block. The motor has to be designed with efficient engine design from the start. The zetec is far from that unfortunately.
