I did the same thing to my two last weekend. Cactus car wash $7. I lack motivation to wash cars when it's below 50 degrees and they were filthy.

22 gallons? That's a huge tank! My dad's Yukon and 2500 cost that much too fill as well. (Which is actually why he bought his 528). 93 Octane here is running about $3.70 a gallon.

EDIT: Ran out of good coffee at work, had to resort to Maxwell House Breakfast Blend. It's some foul coffee, but better than nothing I guess.

My mom's windstar has a 27 or 28 gallon tank. That thing is massive. Will hit $100 mark pretty easily even on el-cheapo 87

The new Itunes is the gayest thing I've ever seen. How the hell do I go back to the last version and keep all my songs?

This thread got a lot of attention, but the guy really is selling the car complete with all of the parts for $2k. Car has 246k miles... thoughts?
I'd pick it up if it was worth it. Can't decide. Someone talk me out of it.

I've found a couple places to download the older versions, so I'm going to try that.

For some reason I went ballistic when I opened Itunes today and saw that crap. I dont know how Apple makes money when their board meetings must go something like this:

Apple Douche: "Lets take our current version that's very easy to use, and completely change it so that all the menus are hidden, take away the sidebar, and remove the ability to simply find songs in the search bar."

Apple Douche #2 "Yeah, that's a great idea!"

Apple Douche #3 "So original!"

*** and so it was created; Itunes 11

I feel like apple does this with all there product.
Apple douche 1 "How can we make the same phone and still make people that have this phone already buy it again?"
APD 2 " Move the button from this side to that side!
APD 1" Genius!!!!!!!!!"
ANd so iphone 1 - 100 were created.

The only thing digital or analog are the climate controls. 318's had the twist knob deals...most highers had the digital.
