    Loves computers and cars. I even know a couple tricks on getting onto the worldwide web using the computers at like Sears, Library, etc. I also built 2 computers successfully
  1. What song are you listening to right now.

    far away-nickelback
  2. got better gas mileage using premium in a regular car

    It’s the end of of the day and here is what I found -the gas mileage increased barely any/no improvement (360 miles) -the performance at low rpms has increased (possibly because of an advanced base ignition timing and/or more fuel put in the cylinder) it was a good experiment and it’s coming to a close. Next time i take a trip, I’ll run midgrade and see what happens. I did hit 100+ occasionally during the trip.
  3. got better gas mileage using premium in a regular car

    in my mind short shifting lugs the engine becasue it doesnt have too much low end torque
  4. got better gas mileage using premium in a regular car

    i just saw the estimated range go up from 350 miles to 425 miles in like 5 seconds after the computer adjusts. I only covered a couple miles after filling up. im Leaving for madison in a few minutes and ill update it throughout the trip
  5. got better gas mileage using premium in a regular car

    that's exactly how dad drives and i drive. he shifts at 2000 rpm every gear, i do 3-4k rpm and sometimes at redline if im having fun
  6. got better gas mileage using premium in a regular car

    i got a 1.8L NA 4 cylinder, your engine is 1 cylinder short and 600cc's smaller. The old civics back then were actually light enough to get 40+ mpg on the highway and 35 city
  7. got better gas mileage using premium in a regular car

    i filled up at a shell using their "V-Power Nitro+" fuel
  8. got better gas mileage using premium in a regular car

    i got 5 gears and i only use 5th above 45 mph. I drive fast and city mpg is 26 with me driving. My dad who drives slower gets 30-33 in the city and 35+ on the highway. He broke 36 one time
  9. got better gas mileage using premium in a regular car

    this run is just an experiment. Im gonna cover about 300-320 miles so if the computer is right there should be around 100 miles left on the tank
  10. this is interesting, i filled up my 2014 honda civic (manual transmission) with premium and i got better mileage driving the same way. I went from 28ish mpg on the highway to 30 and some change. I find that interesting. But after looking at this: http://owners.honda.com/vehicles/information/2014/Civic Sedan/specs#mid^FB2E5EEW, the engine can take advantage of premium because of the high 10.6:1 compression ratio. I'm goin on a road trip to Madison, Wisconsin so we'll see if the 40 bucks i paid for premium was worth it.
  11. Lenovo G580 popping noise from charge port

    and it popped a few minutes later
  12. Lenovo G580 popping noise from charge port

    ok now the laptop is staying on but isnt posting
  13. Lenovo G580 popping noise from charge port

    also the laptop has the same pop even on battery
  14. Lenovo G580 popping noise from charge port

    i didnt buy with an hdd
  15. I have recently bought a Lenovo G580 for 20 usd that will not turn on. The computer powers on but after a few seconds i hear a pop from the charger port (seems to happen every other attempt to turn on) and the laptop shuts off. When the laptop turns on without the pop, there is no picture, just the backlight and pressing the power button once shuts it off. I have tried the following: Change cmos battery (did nothing) remove the ram (which made the laptop beep and you have to hold the power button for a few seconds to make it turn off, so i suspect the mobo is good) install known working ram (same symptoms as above) Connecting to a monitor (only the backlight came on, no picture as above) Any ideas? Specs: core i5 (unknown model) 8 gigs of ddr3-1600 Intel HD Graphics
