so Rat what is your mode of transport

the 40 Foot limousine?
Whatever you do, do it to the purpose; do it thoroughly, not superficially. Go to the bottom of things. Any thing half done, or half known, is in my mind, neither done nor known at all. Nay, worse, for it often misleads.

It uses unleaded gas and can hold approx. 2.5 gallons.  We were told by the dealer it can give you about 70-80 miles per gallon. 

On a personal note, I find them to be very cool.

Her choice, not mine.  It's a matter of economics and lifestyle.
