MTTS Update: Your Questions Answered
We gave you the chance to ask some questions, and Gina Koutros took almost 20 minutes with us earlier today to answer them.
Besides the questions, we also get some more information about the way the events were planned, hows and whys and all that.
There will be more updates coming a little later this week or early next. You can get updates automatically via email or subscribe via RSS. Of course, we will be posting those updates at Motoringfile.com as well.
And, finally, don’t forget to register if you plan on going! If you want the goodie bag, you are going to have to register!
Interview with Gina 3:

Again with the re-runs? Yep, I am afraid so. Don’t worry, I picked a great show for you tonight. Woofcast #141. Worth a re-listen if only to hear Gabe attempt an intro. It’s truly awesome.
Don’t worry, we’ll be back next week just like you like. We only need a short break!
Woofcast #141 Show Notes
To start with, db just didn’t want to do the intro tonight. You benefit. Trust me.
Did you see this? Poor guy.
db is soooo close to 150K miles it’s not even funny.
Gabe’s NCAA picks, if you like that kind of thing.
If you get the chance, check out MINI2.co.za.
Longest MINI Convoy attempt if you like that kind of thing. Oh yea, you kinda have to be in the UK for it too. Todd thinks he’s already beat that number, but it wasn’t legit with the Guinness people.
Plus a little bit of news for the week.
Woofcast #247, take 2
Last week was Todd, this week was me. Sorry for the delay in getting the show into the feed!
I say it’s Woof 247, but really, it’s not. With MTTS right around the corner, and this being Memorial Day weekend in the US, we decided to take the week off. Not to worry, I pulled a couple of great shows out of the archives for you. Tonight, let’s go back to 06/05/06 for Woof 66 where we learn, among other things, that Gabe can’t whistle. Full notes below.
We will be back next week to get warmed up for MTTS, plus we have another interview scheduled with Gina Koutrous from MINIUSA that will be going up later this week or the first part of next.
Server issues…geek stuff…blah blah blah…geek stuff…blah blah blah. Anyway, there were issues most of yesterday that didn’t get corrected until early this morning.
We do actually cover the news of the week and then some, but first…
Gabe can’t whistle? But he can snap like a MoFo! db rants on traffic and waking up early. Todd has nothin’ but a pair of fuzzy slippers and a robe and some cool special effects. Oh yea, Gabe drops a joke bomb.
- BMW Says No

Yes, you heard me correctly. This was take 2. The live audience actually got to listen to us record this episode, in full length, twice. It worked out because it turned out to be a better show.
Tonight we spend some time talking about Hypermiling. Links? Oh, you betcha.
There is the Hypermiling.com site. My suggestions and techniques came from this page.
And there is this article at Edmunds which has a few more extreme examples. Todd was working from this.
Even more good techniques can be found here too. The things we do to save gas.
Of course, you could always use public transportation, ride a bike or walk. But where’s the challenge there?
If you are going to do your own math to compute your MPG, here is the math again, in case you missed it.
Total miles driven / total gallons used = MPG
db and Todd cover news of the week without Gabe. There wasn’t that much news anyway, so it worked out.
To start, get used to hearing the reminder about MTTS, coming up in just a few weeks! Don’t forget to register.
Also, keep your eyes peeled for a new badge from Motoringbadges.com. The ‘I’m the Stig’ badge is very cool and it’s the next one coming!
Live again, audio only since I wasn’t wearing pants. Also, we got Gabe for tonight, but he was to wiped out to keep going, so tomorrow it’s just Todd and myself.
If you haven’t yet, don’t forget to register for MTTS! Remember, if you don’t register you won’t get the free bag of swag! And, if you are going to LA, come by and look us up. We will be celebrating our 3rd anniversary!
To those of you that have offered to run the WRR myspace page, I will be getting back to you later this week. Thanks!
Finishing off with news of the week.
