Because if you can spend that much, you probably already own most of those.
You’re not really the subject of my comment, since you can clearly afford it. Two responses:
Man, everyone giving you shit for sounding classist but really, if you can’t afford the difference in price between regular and premium, you’re going to have a hard time affording any car. Even at 10mpg, that’s a difference of less than a nickle per mile just about anywhere in the US.
If you cannot afford the difference between regular premium on a regular commute, chances are you cannot afford gasoline. period.
If you can’t afford the fuel specified on your car’s gas cap, you chose the wrong car.
That’s not how it works at all. First off, ECU’s can’t determine the octane rating of the fuel. Rather, there are a set of tables that determine spark advance based on engine load, throttle opening and RPM. Then, there is a multiplier that’s set based on the current knock sum, which is usually a number that’s…
Worked with someone who bought an EcoBoost Ford Flex, and put 87 in it to save a few bucks. Not only did the ECU pull timing so aggressively (to prevent knock) to make it run like an absolute dog, but he also tanked his fuel economy enough (like 6 or 7 mpg reduction!) that he certainly wasn’t saving any money either.
If you drive a car which requires premium, but you can’t afford premium, then you are driving a car you cannot afford to begin with.
Oh jeez, here come the cool witty atheists with their flying spaghetti monster jokes...
Thank you, they did this BS on the LC500 review too, it was a “huge coupe”? its the size of a Camaro. A 1972 Eldorado is a HUGE coupe........
lol. never go 5 over huh?
Been that way for a long time.
This, getting enough range of motion to manipulate the car’s control surfaces would necessitate removing one’s seat belt, thus leading to greater injury upon impact (presuming they were both in the back seat of the car and do not have ridiculous wingspan)
1. People seriously underestimate the kinetic forces involved in exiting (voluntarily or otherwise) a moving vehicle. Have you seen the injuries caused by falling off a motorcycle back seat at 25 MPH or trying to jump off a train at that’s just barely pulling out of a station? It’s kind of like our evolutionary…
Why would they sue Uber? For employing a mortal?
You sure you would have reacted in exactly the right way in a suddenly dangerous situation? Trying to stop the car from the back seat might have ended badly for you and your wife too. Not saying you wouldn’t have saved the day but who knows when things suddenly go very wrong what will look like the best option.
“a multi-billion dollar company to sue” the only reason they need in America
I guess sometimes I forget just how lawsuit-happy Americans are. You’d probably sue Purina if my dog shat on your lawn.
“completely insane.” - What’s completely insane is poking a guy who was clearly not breathing. Are cops in Chicago not trained in CPR? When a person stops breathing, every single second counts. You don’t need a medical degree to do chest compression. Every single second counts. Longer you wait, less chances of a…
Why would they sue Uber? It wasn’t their fault the driver died. That could have happened if their friend were driving them, only then they wouldn’t have a multi-billion dollar company to sue.
