Fuel Economy: Is just one piece of the puzzle that is our bottomless appetite for oil. Cars don’t have to be consumable. Instead of throwing them away, we can rebuild them, better. We have the technology.

This was a long time coming! I was so thrilled when they announced your name!!

I have to say I was totally surprised by this It really is an honor. I never knew BUG*PWR, but I have gone back and read most of his posts. Like him I enjoy helping others, and seeing others able to finish their project brings me a great deal of satisfaction.

This award really means a lot to me and I will cherish it forever. Thank you to everyone... it's great to have the things you do recognized.

I also have to mention that I rely heavily on the knowledge and teaching of others. I stand on the shoulders of Oilhammer, Matt|98AHU, MOGolf, and everyone else who has shared their knowledge and skill with me. Thank you

-Jason

Oh, I wish I had taken pictures of your face as the award was being announced. "Is that me? No, it can't be. No, it has to be someone else...but, wait, that does sound like me...." It was too cute. I'm so glad I was there to see it. Congratulations, again.
