You have a deal, my friend. Keep me informed.

As a side note: I just bought a 2001 Honda Insight. Well, I put a
deposit down, anyway; going to pick it up in a few days and hopefully
it's as advertised. 68mpg EPA, lifetime mpg on the computer shows 57,
though, which is to be expected. Regardless, if I drive it careful I
should have no problem getting 60mpg. Folks on the Insight forum claim
70-80mpg is possible if you change your driving habits somewhat to
take advantage of regenerative braking, etc.

So, I now have a new commuter car, I'll only have to go to the gas
station once per month, and the coverage on my DeLorean is moving from
State Farm to Grundy and going from $912 per year to $195 per year -
for better coverage with zero deductible, etc.

I figure this will get me by until I can purchase a Chevy Volt.
