Didn't take you long to stop ignoring!!!

Truth be told, you have taken on a number of screen names.
One of them happens to be LMV.
I have little regard for either.

Both simply can't handle someone who challenges.
And the result is filth and condescension--one does the filth and the other the condescension.
And only because you don't like the responses you don't want to hear.

To LMV do you see what I mean?

The absolute best thing to do is just ignore him. Reasonable conversation is not what hes after. Just hit the ignore button.

Cool. I suspect your wife likes Sport Mode. I love it, but that yearn for hypermiling kicks back in after a couple of quick launches. I wish I had the Hold Mode. But, as I stated, I do pretty good with Mountain Mode. It saves me up to 15 miles of E for my destination.

Even if I'm out of E, I can put it in MM and it will do the same. It's not as efficient as yours, bit I do pretty well.

OK, Happy motoring.

Yes. It has 4 modes as apposed to my 3. The mountain mode is supposed to be for going into big mountain ranges. But a lot of people have come to love it for other benefits it gives.

Here's a pretty good article that explains MM. It doesn't cover everything, though.

I hope the dolt doesn't read that. This guy is another driver that gets 43 mpg freeway in gas mode. Just like Mpgomatic did.

But it is an interesting recipe.
Perhaps the imposter Gizmo should write a cook book.

Their beer is nasty. I could see it tasting like warm urine.

Wait, I have another one. One of the reasons canadians can't talk about cars in an American forum is because they don't know much about them. They have more kilometres on the snow blower than their car. hahaha

Frustrate a Frenchman, he will drink himself to death; an Irishman, he will die of angry hypertension; a Dane, he will shoot himself; an American, he will get drunk, shoot you, then establish a million dollar aid programme for your relatives. Then he will die of an ulcer.

I like this one better.

All American writing gives me the impression that Americans don't care for girls at all. What the American male really wants is two things: he wants to be blown by a stranger while reading a newspaper and he wants to be fucked by his buddy when he's drunk. Everything else is society.

Ain't this the truth....

This, I believe, sums it all up....

America is the only nation in history which has gone miraculously gone directly from barbarism to degeneration without the usual interval of civilisation
