    Ditto with Texas. No Stickers. Just show the inspector your current insurance card. Inspection and valid insurance then gets entered into state database, and online registration renewal is a snap.

    I record mine 3 tanks at a time. When I was at ~5k miles, I was getting 34.0 to 36.5 mpg (nine tanks in a row).

    Now, at 71k+ miles, the last nine tanks ranged from 36.9 to 38.1 mpg.

    YMMV!

    I've never paid for an alignment. That's factory only, which I know isn't perfect. But the amount of pull, and the amount of wear doesn't indicate any dire error.
