Basically engines do not love it

But older style diesel being tougher and more durable could cope better with such experiments.

I think it may be dangerous for the whole car. It may find another owner pretty fast

0.5-0.6 VW 1.9 TDI 131 bhp.

Petrol cars consume more when idle.

A Early morning landing on the NJTPK



&

I forgot to post this NJTPK video.

Ledger Live HD: The New Jersey Turnpike Turkey



They captured her a week after this shot and shes now at a zoo in South Jersey. But hours after this aired , mobs of residents gathered to take pictures and feed the bird. Which slowed traffic.

It's dangerous do that, though. People have been known to die from carbon minoxide poisoning. Especially when people pull over in blizzards and their tail pipe is covered in snow.

Yeah, every time I read about it in the NWS survival tips, they always say; run the engine 10 minutes every hour and make sure the exhaust pipe is free of snow.

Does anybody know where I could find motorway standards for individual countries? I need stuff like slip road length, numbers of junctions per kilometre, etc.

Just got my flight confirmation back to the Netherlands.

It's going to suck, I'll be awake for 2 days. I'll be leaving Colorado around 11.00 am. And I'll arrive in Amsterdam the next day around 9.25 am.

A Kodak Digital , a user on here tried to take it off and he couldn't , My new Camera is a Sony Digital Webbie, but the time & data stamp doesn't appear on those. But those photos aren't as sharp as my Kodak.

The way back to the Netherlands from Alaska was quite bad as well. We left Valdez, AK at 9 am, arrived in Anchorage, AK at 7 pm where our flight left at 1:30 am. We arrived in Seattle, WA at 6 am and left again at 8 am. At 3 pm we arrived in Atlanta GE, where our next flight left at 5 pm. The next morning we arrived in Amsterdam. That was pretty bad, especially since I hardly slept. I was quite tired that day
