I took my owners manual out of my glove box, saved me 1MPG and got me 5-10 more HP.

comedian :) ..... I was hoping to get some honest discussion so that people that come on this site might start to realize that the manual isn't a door-stop.

Dear Chassy, The first thing you should do if you see/find an owners manual that belongs to your car in your cars glove box, is immediately remove it from your glove box and promptly replace it with yet another owners manual from another car. Year, model, type has no bearing as no one reads them anyway. I had an idea. Nobody reads those bibles the Gideon's put in hotel rooms. Why not have them branch out to car dealers and have them put owners manuals in other places no one opens. However a real tip here. If perchance you DO need happen to refer to an owners when you rent a car, and don't find it in the glove box, (and you won't) lift the trunk lid and look under the spare tire. It's true, they put them there so people can't steal them and not read them as easily. I know we're joking... I think..Lol..

I try to help with an intelligent question, but as Chris Cross says, it's raining morons and I'm too old for this.

Maybe we should be asking if our cars should have glove boxes?

Come to think of it. I never put a pair of gloves in any of my "glove boxes"

P.S. ----I used that "contact us" button a while back and suggested that I'd like to see more choices for me to click when I read an answer. Maybe something like ----interesting.......good to know.......This answer is the only answer needed......good suggestion. I also asked about this BEST ANSWER thingy because I got a few when I had just barely finished typing?? It's the accountant in me mixed with the grease monkey that started me questioning what is going on here?
