  1. My 2002 Sable wagon is such a great car, and my wife likes it so much, I went and got a 2003 Taurus wagon.  The Sable has the 3.0 DOHC.  It's got fog lights, a floor shifter, the 6 CD changer (which doesn't work), leather upholstery, auto temp, & the electric mirror.  The Taurus has the 3.0 Vulcan OHV. I actually prefer its flip style mirror with no wiring.  Then I can dim bright lights from other cars on demand.  

    So I'm changing spark plugs in the Taurus.  They look burnt to almost nothing & are probably too hot from charts.  Advanced Auto gave me plugs for the 3.0 DOHC.  Gotta get them switched.  This car gets 17 mpg.  The Sable averaged about 28 mpg on a 1600 mile trip I took a month ago. 

    So I'll be looking for ways to improve gas mileage with the Vulcan.  ERG?  I'm checking into that next.
