I just realized I haven't bought a tank of gas for my 2002 WRX since we
got our 06 Prius on 1/13,  Poor baby, it is such a great driver for
trips to the mountains, desert, or other places far from home.  But,
we've been doing mostly local driving, and the Prius has just won me
over.  (It is my wife's car, her idea of sticking it to Bush and the
whole middle east oil debacle).  I  guess if this continues I'll have
to hire some college student to take it out for a spin once in a while.
 What's this world coming to?

I have no idea what we're going to do with all that oil once we turn the
barren, radioactive remains of the middle east over to Halliburton, but
certainly Bush has a "plan" (as in Papillion).

My Passat is dead in the garage.  I was trying to take it out
frequently enough to avoid that but obviously didn't succeed.
  I have to bring it back to life so it can get its inspection
sticker.  I love(d?) that car and feel like a traitor, but...

 My WRX only took Premium - got rid of it.

Yes, that's another downside of my Passat (STILL dead in the
garage)--not only did it get bad (and then even worse)
mileage, but it also takes Premium gas.  It is a pleasure to
fill up the Prius--even moreso now that the gas prices are
rising again.
