Referring to Fritz and fuel. It is risky to let your tank get too low, there is a danger that dirt from the bottom will be drawn up into the engine. My car beeps when it only has 80 km left and every time I restart it afterwards.  I get petrol ASAP then as I do not know how accurate it is.

Yeah, I know. I didn't want it to get so low, but it kinda snuck up on me. Then I didn't want to risk driving it to get fuel near here.

I've had to adjust how I buy gas for the Santa Fe, because it has the start/stop technology.

With my Tracker, I would spend anywhere between $30.00 - $40.00 on gas each week, and it would be near empty when I would have to refill.   Because of the start/stop tech, the Santa Fe doesn't use that much gas, and I either fill up on my usual days with less money, or I let the car go into the next week and wait for it to go lower.

I nice benefit for the new car.  ;D

Mahlzeit!

Just finished my waffles.

1. Danke. We had Kohlrouladen, a favourite.

2. Were they good?

Ingli, from your post on FB a year ago.


Isn't that really frightening?

Nothing has changed.

No, although over here, we're hearing how much better things will by July 4.  So says President Biden, anyway.  We'll see.

Strict measures to stop the virus are paying off for governments The Western Australia State Government probably had the strictest rules and border blockades of all the Australian States. The Labor Government has just been re-elected with possibly 52 or 53 seats out of 59. Unheard of, the opposition parties have been nearly wiped out. Similar to the Labour Government here in NZ late last year. Not that good but they are governing on their own for the first time this century.

LOL  Like when you're a kid and anticipation keeps you up on Christmas Eve.  :laugh:

Yeah, pretty much. : D

That is nice. I'm hoping to get a hybrid as my next car, I think it does the same.

I sometimes have a peanut butter sandwich because I do not have anything else, no slices of meat and not willing to open a can of chicken or salmon. But I would never call it delicious, it is just better than nothing. I buy a 300 gram jar perhaps once a year.
I buy energy logs to feed the wild birds and bought a pack yesterday. They come in either peanut butter or berry flavour. I chose berry flavour and am sure the birds would like that more. ;D

What we really need here is a sort of rebellion against it. In a positive, constructive way.

People are almost paralyzed, don't seem to develop any energy although so much is at stake. Economically and also psychologically.

And this is not good all the way around. I know here, that psychologically, people don't have a whole lot of hope, when not seeing an end in sight. I know for me, receiving even the first shot, has given me a lot more hope about there being a light at the end of the tunnel. When you don't have this, it is hard to take psychologically.

I am undecided about a new car. I like my 2009 Ford Fiesta and it is very economical. However a new Ford Fiesta is much more expensive than similar size cars, not sure why. I am thinking about an e-car or a hybrid. However I put my money that I would use into a  6 month term deposit last month so have put off any decision until August.

Charging stations are springing up everywhere. I would have no problem with my usual weekly travel but worry about long trips. I have been doing more of those in the past year due to Covid preventing me travelling overseas.

Other countries seem to have a better set up than the US for electric cars.   I know we have charging stations here, but I don't know how numerous they are.
