One of my friends bought 2 recliners at a furniture liquidation sale. He needed help hauling the chairs back to his house since he drove his car (cargo room fail) into town. Guess who had the space for 2 reasonable-sized recliners? Nope, not KITT, the talking car, you idiot! Beulah, my caravan. I don't have the middle and back seats in my van in case something should go awry, so this was a simple load into the back of the van.

The delivery trip (140 miles one-way) was nice. It made me think about buying a CD receiver. Nobody likes a 16-year old cassette player.

Caravan odometer = 172,599 miles

Octane and Ethanol

Well, I didn't noticed much, if any, improvement with the 87 octane, 0% ethanol gasoline, compared to the 89 octane, 10% ethanol. I won't be posting the MPG numbers since it was so minuscule. I will be going back to the ethanol blend in the winter time.
