Tags and Title, Finally

It took almost three months but I finally got both the tags and title slip for my MINI this weekend. The lesson learned here is that it’s better to go to the local office in person than choose the convenience of mailing it in. Just one more important piece of mail to come…. my rescheduled citizenship interview with the INS, but I think that is going to require a visit to their office so I can ask wtf in person.

In MINI news, Carrie is now at 46,700 and some change, slowly making it towards out of warranty time. Service indicator is predicting 50,300 for the oil change so slim to none chance of me getting that on MINI’s dime.

My First 400 Mile Tank

Don’t know whether it’s the gas mix, the cooler temps, the leaking coolant system or what but I am on the cusp of my first ever 400 mile tank in the ’05. Currently I am on 375 miles, with 44 remaining according to the OBC, an indicated MPG of 29.7. I’ve had the OBC read as low as 15 before so I’m pretty sure that I’ll get to 400 on this tank. Good times.

[Update] Had to go to the DMV about my missing tags, stopped for gas on the way…. put in 13.8 gallons of juice to give me a calculated MPG of 28.9!! If only I could get that all the time.
