Prism doesn’t require Auto-Pay for bills, does it?I’m looking to switch from Mint Bill Pay and I get a kick out of initiating the bill pay myself (also, slight control freak).

True, and most truck tires are kept under the box, just in front of the hitch receiver. That being said, 11 years is old for a tire, and not one that I would trust except in extreme emergencies.

Yup. Wyoming, South Dakota, and Nebraska all have fairly static county #s. Wasn’t aware of Kansas and Iowa actually stating the county/abbreviation. That’s unique. I usually judge locations in terms of speeding vehicles. I see the plate, see they are from a “speedy” region, and say “it figures”.

In a lot of the states with lower populations, they’ll have a county # for the first few digits. That starts making you wonder where they are from within the state. It also decides whether or not you dislike said driver based on whether you like/dislike that specific region of the state.

I just bought a 2016 Honda Accord with 75 miles on it for $1500 less than a 2016 Honda Accord Certified (warranty to 100,000 miles) with 7,500 miles...I have yet to come up with a great explanation...other than, Read more

Patience goes a long ways. If you can tell they are swamped and don’t bring attention to your recently empty glass (even though they may tell you that they’ll be right back), it goes along way in the staff’s eyes that you aren’t pushy. They’ll appreciate the lack of neediness and will usually pay it back in either Read more

Not debating anything you said, but I wanted to clarify that it’s Maine and Nebraska that split their votes. I’m originally from Neb and I just gotta say, “let us keep our quirky traditions.” We also have a weird Unicameral state legislature that I don’t mind keeping around. Read more

Rapid City, SD has a downtown area that is 20 mph speed limit (I know, I know. You have no idea how much it enrages me) for about 10 blocks because it’s 2-one way roads, each with three lanes. You MIGHT be able to squeeze 25 mph if you coast and time your starts/stops, but for the most part, 20 mph lets you just glide Read more

I luckily get that. On the flip side, Work starts at 5:00 AM and it’s a 1.5 hour commute to work, so I get up at 3:00 AM. To me, its still totally worth it because I carpool, every Friday I have off, and it’s a jeans and t-shirt work environment (I’m a mechanical engineer). Those perks far out weigh the lower pay and Read more

Any idea on if they will fix the ‘15 model Passats and put them out soon? I was two months too late to purchase one and I’m still waiting to pounce on a low mileage Passat.

God, I love the EIA. I use that as my go-to site for info since they keep track of fuel prices for the US, which I look at occasionally. That and fueleconomy.gov are super useful. Read more

I’m aware of the potential thermal energy difference between gas and diesel, and I’m pretty sure (trying to remember Thermo here) that the Diesel cycle is inherently more efficient than the Otto cycle, which helps out too. Read more

I guess I’m missing on how you are saying that diesel creates more CO2 than gas. Everything I have read states that diesel contributes significantly less CO2 and hydrocarbons, but it contributes significantly more NOx and particulate matter than gasoline does. Do you have a source that shows diesel emitting more CO2 Read more

I quickly looked up cars that get 40+ mpg on gas, and I found subcompacts/compacts with engines less than 1.5L, and“fuel-efficiency” trim packages to boost economy. BMW, Audi, VW, and Mercedes (unsure on Merc) all provide 40+ mpg diesel cars that aren’t subcompacts with no “high efficiency” trim packages. I can get a Read more
