Thanks for all the feed back on my last post. I will to a paper and pencil mpg to see if I can get 50
from the instant showing 47.

My new question

I have a Sliver car with 9500 miles. The front of the car is getting many stone chips. I do not tailgate
and the way I travel has not changed from the other car I used to drive. If I keep this car as long as I did the old one 285,000 miles, I'm thinking that there will be no paint left on the front. Are todays paints thinner then in 1990? I was thinking that the Silver shows off the chip because the plastic below is black. I should have invested in a Clear bra. BTW the old car was silver too.

Any thoughts?
