    Changed out the Winter Tires, Fuel economy Jumped

    Wife drives a 2019 RAV4 Hybrid. Her driving pattern is fairly consistent. Changed out her Hakk9 studded winters for OE Michelin Primacy. I reset the trip meter, didn't mention a thing to her. Fuel economy went from 8.5L/100 km (28 mpg) to 7.4L/100km (32 mpg). Weather was similar before and...

    Tesla Autopilot - needs some work

    Correction - needs a lot of work. Does it have the correct hardware/software to make AP happen? Thinking LIDAR sensors and way more mature software. Check out the second video. <a href="https://www.citizenfreepress.com/breaking/watch-tesla-auto-pilot-crash/"...

    Been following this channel for a bit. The host is a MB tech, some interesting topics. Part of this piece talks about oil change frequency and some unintended consequences of not changing oil frequently enough. Mostly anecdotal, but looks to be accurate to me. If you want to get to the oil...

    Cool Older mini SUV

    Saw this while waiting in line at the recycling depot. Cool little SUV from the 90s (I think). I wouldn't want to be in a crash with it, but in great shape for the age. Looks like the owner takes pride in it. <a class="lb-image-link" rel="shadowbox[520955a0722aa40875]"...

    Visited my doctor today

    I am "slightly" over 50 years old and visited my doctor today. I mentioned my health expectations of him. "Hey doctor, I am near middle age (his eyebrows raise), and it's your job to keep me there." All said in good humor of course ... and maybe not. True story.
