Re: Window Sticker Discrepancy

Yep - the window stickers don't list everything especially things that are standard or are lumped in a package. Best bet is to get a build sheet that lists everything.

Re: Should I use REC 90 gas in my V8?

OK - Two full tanks of REC 90 and two full tanks of Mid-Grade 89.

The results:

REC 90: 422 miles / 35.20 gallons = 11.99 = 12 MPG

Mid-Grade 89: 453 miles / 40.58 gallons = 11.16 = 11.2 MPG

Re: Fold-down passenger seat - Yes? No?

I'd go for the fold down seat it the seat comfort / looks are the same. How often does the passenger seat need to be moved a lot anyway? The convenience for long items would be nice.
