That isn't going to be much better on gas than your M5. Try keeping your foot out of the throttle and setting your cruise control at the speed limit. It's amazing what driving 55 will do for your fuel mileage!

It seems to me like the bugs have all been worked out. The more I use it, the more I like it. So far the only thing that seems to be annoying is the iPod interface. But, I don't own an iPod, so I've only played with it one night with my girl's. If we set up a meet you can check it out. Or, I think I'm going to be in Visalia this Tuesday. Maybe we can meet up at some point?

Sacramento Fanatics

Im hoping to score some help from a Sacramento fanatic.

I recently got a SES code after adding some Techron to my car this morning. I left my Peake tool in San Francisco and although the car is running great, pulling the code is the prudent thing to do.

Anyone in Sacramento have a Peake tool I could come by and use? I'd really appreciate it and would be happy to bring some beer as a thank you. I'll be in Sacramento until tomorrow 12/28 morning.

Thanks guys
