My Eco Echo

People made fun when I bought an Echo
they said it couldn’t out run a gecko.
Called it a four cylinder sewing machine
about the size of a large kidney bean.

In 01 when the gas was not as high
a manual stick I opted to buy.
I said gas will go up you wait and see
they jeered and laughed, all poking fun at me.

I pampered it with K & N filter
made sure not a thing went out of kilter.
Added a tornado to air intake
increasing mpg was piece of cake.

With windows rolled down, holding constant speed
forty-seven miles per gallon- indeed.

    I'm glad you liked the write and you are an Echo person too. There is not too many Echos still around in good shape. I wish they were still making them. I have gotten 50 mpg at times but 47 is mostly highway miles. Yes, fill up goes for weeks and weeks! Caryl
