Woofcast #298

Todd, Michael and myself got together last week and put a great show down for you this week. And, at just at an hour long, quite a bit as well.

Starting off with Michael’s gas woes driving from California to Ohio, then right into news of the week from Motoringfile.com.

For the **content** portion of the show, we spend some time on the JD Power Survey Results. Why we think the MINI scored so low to why we think you should still buy a MINI. Bonus, if you listen close, you can hear Todd make the squealing clutch sound. Finishing talking about stuff we do now that we would have not done before because we are MINI Owners. Also, interestingly enough, most of us have been presidents of our respective MINI Clubs.

Big thanks to Greg for calling into the WRR voicemail line at 206-202-3252. Check out his classic Mini blog at minicooper.tumblr.com.

Lots of cool WRR and MF stuff going on around the internet lately. You can join our fan pages at Facebook a little easier now. facebook.com/whiteroofradio and facebook.com/motoringfile. You can also follow the WRR Twitter bot for updates as they happen.

Finally, how about a Motoringbadges magnet-off? Listen up for details.

  1. Dude, was I the only one who inserted a quick mental “whiteroofradio” at the end of Mr. McDowell’s interview, lol? 😉

  2. I have bird crap, dirty wheels and no motoring badges (Todd, where are the “You just got passed by a girl” badges?) but I am a total MINI enthusiast. People who don’t wave make me INSANE though. Wave, monkeys, wave!

  3. I am also looking for the “You just got passed by a girl” badge. I would like to get one for my wife’s MC. She is fast becoming an enthuiast herself! Of course I’m the one keeping it clean. 🙂

  4. Todd and Michael, I have an ’05 R50 and moved to Decorah, IA from the east coast about two years ago. I use the locally available 91 octane E10 premium which is available at several (but not all) stations and represents the highest octane rating available. I have not noticed a degradation in performance. I suspect the ECU adapted to the E10 fuel long ago. I’ve never had a CEL or related problem. That said, it seems that I cannot quite achieve the same level of fuel efficiency I enjoyed in northern VA — perhaps 2 mpg less during the comparable summer months on average. The biggest PITA in IA is that it is not uncommon to pull into a station and find NO premium fuel available at all. Perhaps a third of the distributors sell nothing higher than 89 E10. I stay away from them.
