    So i was leaving the town where i live to come back to my parents house for labor day weekend. I go through the driveway at the local fast food place. I pull in behind a guy in a newer Pontiac Bonneville. He stops at the Speaker thing by the menu shuts off his car. I was like what the hell. I heard him do his order, then he started his car, drove up to the window. I made my order and drove ahead behind him again, and his car was shut off again :rolleyes: He was prolly wasteing as much gas shutting it off and starting it as it would of took to idle

    Gas is 3.19 here now... :doah:

    diesels and drive thru's dont mix..

    Be glad you dont have a diesel!--I ALWAYS have to kill the motor at a drive up window or speaker--otherwise all they hear is CLACK CLACK CLACK!!---and I smoke out the whole resturaunt if they make me wait more than 30 seconds at the window!--I seem to get my food faster when I'm in the diesel pickup! :rolleyes: :crazy:

    At least he was attempting to save. Not like the dumbass kids last night near my house, driving like the gas pedal is an ON/OFF switch, rather than a proportional control. I guess Mommy & Daddy are still giving them gas money, 'cause I KNOW Mickey D's and Old Navy aren't paying enough for these kiddies to burn that much gas...

    I took our powerstroke through a drive through that had walls on both sides, not only did I have to shut it off for myself, but every other person in line because nobody else could hear over it either. :eek1:

    My burb and K5 I had to shut it off at drive thrus. The burb's driver side pipe exited below the passenger door so it pointed right at the speaker or window. Scared the crap out of myself one time. Got on it after some stupid kids just walked in front of the truck so I wanted to scare them. That damn truck was LOUD...

    some guy in a mid 80's Chevy pickup was doing that behind me at the drive-thru the other day.

    every time he'd crank it, his starter would grind like hell, like it's fixing to go out on him.

    I was sitting there thinking "this fool's going to wear out a $30 starter to save $1.00 in gas"
