Bay Area Beckons

And now I am off for an extended weekend with Peter and the San Francisco environs.

Peter seems to have issues with car rental firms, which I don't. For this trip, for instance, I rented a PT Cruiser from Ace at $10.95 a day. When I went in to pick it up, they offered me a 2006 Toyota Sienna Family Van for $5 a day additional, claiming that, despite its size, I will get about 50% better gas mileage. It handles beautifully and I drove it home feeling like I owned the road. I don't know if I can give it back.

When you get back, please let me know if you did in fact get the better mileage, and what the mpg was..

The MPG did not live up to the rental agent's promise. I wasn't able to get a fully accurate reading, but it did obviously not exceed the low 20s. Much better than my Trooper, of course, but that's another story.
