Re: 02 Windstar pinging when hot
It's definitely a pinch. I drive my guzzler mostly during the summer since i can write off expenses (mostly fuel) for work (landscaping). The cars I can't get away with. But at least the cars run fine on 87 octane. I took my Durango down to estin FL and back a couple months ago and it was SO NICE paying around $0.67/L for 91 octane! 2867miles on less than $500 worth of fuel! Equivalent with exchange at the time that $500 would've set me back close to $820 up here. If the dollar was two months ago what it is now, it would've cost me around $450 for the Destin trip. While booking a room at a Holiday Inn south of Nashville, the front desk clerk thought Ontario was a country...uh huh!
