2011 Thunder grey coupe auto
I read that the same way , thought the noise was new with the spacers . I wouldn’t be concerned if it was there before. I think there was a tsb on how to correct it .
Thanks for sharing the data.Saturday, 12-17-22, took Pearl for a drive from St. Pete to Brooksville to attend a wedding.
Decided to run an MPG "experiment".
Running around town, I get roughly (with mods in the signature line) 7.5 to 8.8 running around St. Pete with 10 to 12 of total Interstate driving per day along with 4 miles of city stop light driving. Some days I "might" have bursts going from 78 to 120s on a stretch early in the morning. Weeks I do that push me to the 7.5 and weeks I don't, I see that upper 8 range.
Since I was going up I decided to drive Pearl at 78-82 and "maybe" only keep the burst to a level where I'm not attracting FHP that patrol the Suncoast parkway. So doing that and having 3 bursts, my MPG was 14.568.
Coming home from the wedding and the 1 hour and 25 minute estimated drive I made a promise to myself to stay out of the boost and cruised at 69. My fuel MPG went up to 18.8.
So now I know I can do St. Pete to Miami and "make it" if I do that....it just won't be as much fun.
It might sound weird, but when I'm cruising at the 82, I feel like I'm a Mako shark. Just cruising along confident that I can take on pretty much any prey on the highway looking to play.
Getting gas every 150-170 miles works out great on long trips, since one usually needs to take a piss around 1.5-2hr mark
Only hard part is if you trying to stay on E, since 93 is so much less fun. I have like most of E stations from TX to GA mapped/saved on my gasbuddy app, lol.
I should've added that I chug energy drinks and/or coffee on long trips, lol. obviously I don't got to go every 2 hours during regular times.I don't have that bladder size....4 to 6 hours. Trained aboard USS Omaha while standing midwatch as Helmsman-Planesman-COW-DO. IF you needed piss breaks that frequently....well lets say you weren't given preferential duty later.
@midnight02 find out what your "E" level is. When I'm at E, I have 3 more gallons.
That picture is loaded with inspirational fun goodies -- the sweet new flat bottom leather wheel, the paddle shifter setup and the Llyod's mats. I'm rocking the Weathertech mats with the V logos on them -- they are wonderfully practical given that I'm toting kids back and forth to sporting events, but they don't look nearly as cool as the plush mats!
The mats are the Lloyd Ultimats. The paddles are actually for a VW Golf that I grafted to the stock buttons and cost about $17 from ebay.That picture is loaded with inspirational fun goodies -- the sweet new flat bottom leather wheel, the paddle shifter setup and the Llyod's mats.

So, I'm going to need to apologize for the poor photo quality and the fact they're ridiculously dirty. The weather has been rough around here and I haven't had the time to clean it up the way I would like. Found the V logos on DrewsDecals. Perfect fit -- just pull the WeatherTech logos off and pop these on.WeatherTech V LOGOS???
We need PITCHAS!!!!
The decals are high quality -- same material used for the Airaid CAI emblems. I'm not a big fan of the yellow Airaid emblem or the color in general (of course that would be the caliper cover for the car I ended up buying but I digress) so I picked up a V logo for that as well. Turned out pretty good and just one subtle point of customization I could get some instant gratification on.I’ll be damned those look nice.
I thought you saying that WeatherTec supplied the logos(!)
Never heard the decal place but I’m jotting it down
