Default Euro 2004, anyone interested?

Nobody seem to talk about sport here.
Am I the only one watching soccer games?

This evening: Neetherlands - Germany
I doubt I'm the only one interested here

Yes, I said soccer so that everyone understand. It seems that I was wrong


Are you in Baden, Germany? That's 1 hour away from me!

180 km/hr? That's enviromentally irresponsible. Think of all of the Iraqis your killing by waisting that much fuel.
At that speed, I get less than 7 MPG. I know, I drove that fast from Louisiana to Houston one night (250 miles. didn't make it on 1 tank)

PS I passed that emissions inspection, but not by as good of a margin as last year

Gas................allowed.........My big van
HC (PPM).......142................ 62
CO (%).............6.................0.04
O2........................................0.4
NOx(ppm)......1602...............105

Last year the hc was below 10 ppm. I had cheap gas at the time of the test and it was running a little rough at idle.

Sorry to thread jack. Now back to our scheduled topic.

In Germany, some highways (I think all the 3 lanes ones) have no speed limit

Brian dear, speak for yourself...
@ 180Km/H I am @ 3000RPM and it takes ~ 7.3L/100Km since I am cruising not brakeing/accelerating. I do 180 only when the conditions make it possible.
Not to speak that if you were to drive 180kmh you would break any law and the noise inside your car would be nothing to neglect(bye bye hifi).

There is generally no speed limit on any autobahn in germany and even when there is, it is usually 120 but everybody is doing 140. This greatly helps the traffic without any serious problems caused by speed. You feel it especially when you cross the border into germany from france, belgium, nl... the german autobahns look empty in comparison to those highways in the other countries.

I live at 5 minutes walking to the hotel where England has been.
And 5 minutes walking to the stadium where they make their training every day.
I'm just in the middle.

Are you guys receiving mails from this forum?
I'm not.
This is happening quite often lately.
Sometimes the mails come all at once, at night.
