    I DID in post 18 before you could whine. ;)
    Are you taking Bob's stance that the Prime should be Gen 4.5 ?

    This was taken at the local Arco where I had to use this strange door on the drivers side for the first time:whistle::

    But the $35 for 9 gallons reminded me of why we got this;).

    Not bad for the first tank of gas (y).

    I’m one of them and Toyota delivers that for us;).

    It was funny on Friday as I was unplugging before heading out from work. One of the staff pulled up in his v8 Silverado and complimented the color and was asking questions about it:).

    He’s been thinking about a Volt, so this may have swayed him toward a PHEV(y).

    There are plenty that still buy v6 or v8 SUV’s:cool:.

    But all I can do is share my story and some will listen;).

    Those that listen and investigate usually find similar results(y).

    That’s unfortunate :(.

    The roses have been in bloom for about a month now and were perfect for Easter dinner dinner table center pieces :).

    Just good to have nice weather to keep the kids outside(y).
