What would you do if you had a Rolls-Royce for 2 days?

Last week I had the rare (very rare) opportunity to drive a Rolls-Royce Ghost for 2 days. So, naturally, I asked my tweeps and Facebook fans what they would do with such a car. While I couldn’t bring myself to do most of them (frankly, I’m shy), I did get a good laugh reading the... Read more »

Day 2: Living to tell about the Ford F-150 Fuel Challenge

Day 2: Living to tell about the Ford F-150 Fuel Challenge
It’s official: I am not buzzard bait. I made it through my time with the CleanMPG guys without being left on the side of the road. In fact, of the 5 drivers who took turns at the wheel during the first 2 days, I was solidly in the middle. Beating, I’d like to point out,... Read more »

Where was I when I heard about Osama? In a Ford F-150

If you have been following my Tweets, posts or Facebook page, you know that I am currently coming off a fuel challenge road trip with the CleanMPG crew in a Ford F-150 with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine.

Day 1: 2011 Ford F-150 Fuel Challenge

Jill’s MPGs after her 4.5-hour segment hypermiling in a 2011 Ford F-150 with EcoBoost. After one day with the CleanMPG guys, I wish I could tell you I’m a reformed lead foot. But I’m not. Yet. They do, however, have one more day to convert me. Day 1 was a tough day for the 30... Read more »

30 mpg in a Ford F-150? Hmmm

F-150 test track travels through St. Louis on the way to the challenge start point in LA. Personally I’m a bit skeptical. But for some reason, the guys at CleanMPG not only think they can do it, but they also think they can teach me to do it, too. So, at 10 o’clock tonight I... Read more »

How honest should an auto writer be?

So, an interesting thing happened yesterday in the auto writing world. One of my colleagues in Detroit quit because the editors at his paper told him to tone down a review of the all-new Chrysler 200. At least that’s what we think happened. Neither the paper nor the journalist are commenting. But it didn’t stop... Read more »
