A small congrats, just as Fast- says. Any self-respecting dailydriver will have that kind of mileage after a dozen years.

From someone who's shift indicator broke 3 years ago, I can tell you it really looks strange seeing that little red bar setting there.


And don't EVEN get me going on that fuel gauge. I would have had to get the can out of the trunk about 80 miles ago with a reading that low in mine.

Hell, yours is in GREAT shape compared to mine!

Congrats on the mileage. Another 60K and you'll be officially broken in!

Not really. They needed to fill up the cluster with something so they put this neat little randomly changing bar graph thingy there and a reminder to use only unleaded fuel.

Congrats on the milestone.

I never let my car go below 1/4 of a tank.. just don't want to risk it.

I am 99% sure mine works perfect, but to save the fuel pump I never let it go below a 1/4 of a tank.

Raise hands everyone who's ever seen that little low fuel light and heard the ding-ding. I did for about a year after I got mine in 2000.

I fill at 1 bar over 1/2 = 16 or 17 gallons! [img]graemlins/0.gif[/img]

Somebody here bought the gauge a couple years ago (=$300-350?). Probably $800 by now. It's cheaper to whine.
