Learned something!

Unfortunately to use that feature you have to first upload your pictures to photobucket, unlike the Enclave site which allows you to post your pictures right from your computer. Is it just different folks maintaining each Lambda site and some are more focused to fix then others?

Thanks for the tip on photobucket rbarrios!!

on photobucket... when you hover over a pic---a box pops up.
move the mouse over the IMG CODE line-- its light yellow. Simply click one time on this line- and it flashes-- COPIED.

then simply come here and RT click/paste... and it automatically inserts the URL and special code to display pics.

Bigneef123,

Thanks! That's Eastwoods' High Temp Paint. Click on that picture in Photobucket to get a closeup of the can.

Nice, is that Eastwood paint a rust inhibitor or rust proofer?

GAS MILEAGE-TRIP FROM MICHIGAN TO TENNESSEE & RETURN

Hi all!

Thought I would post up my most recent trip experience with my '09 XR with FWD. We were gone a week and logged over 1,300 miles. Actual pumped gallons for the total trip was 89.499 gallons. Total actual miles covered was 1,314.7 miles. The overall calculated average from the pumped fuel was 14.69 mpg! Not too shabby considering we pulled an open car hauler with a 3,000 lb car strapped down on her. The trailer weighs 1,720 lbs. Our factory trailer towing package is rated at 5,200 lbs and we were right about there with 2 adults and luggage/tools. Had a Keisler 5 speed overdrive transmission installed in the '5 while down there. Nice setup. No issues with the Saturn. Handles real well towing with this load. Climbing some of the mountains in Kentucky/Tennessee I saw the tach hit 4,500 to 5,500 a couple of times. Pulled nice and steady.

Our trip back was a wet one...wipers on all the way home. For the trip I set the cruise at 60 mph and used the trailer button in the "D" mode. Overall average speed per the DIC was 49.5 mph.

Here's a link with pics at one of our gas stops on the way back. I knock on wood as we've had no issues with this Lambda.

Pet peeve here. Why is it I still cannot post pictures through this site's "Additional Options..." feature Fix the bloody site!

Regards,
