    In your case, a dozen tanks of gas would provide you with enough points of data where you could derive the average, median, and range that are useful in personal budget planning.



    In our culture obsessed with absurd excess, the Nissan Micra is my counterculture car of choice.

    I was dicking around in the drive-thru this morning when I realized the signal only flashed twice for some reason.
    Some investigation turned up this (sweet) nugget: if you hold the signal in the lane change position (not past the click), juuuust until the end of the first pause between flashes then release, it will stop flashing.

    Basically any time after the first pause, ie mid-second flash, you can let go and it will turn off. If you time it perfectly, you can get it just before the second flash starts.

    I think this is badass and should be our forum secret handshake if we see other Micrae on the road, but I am a huge geek.

    You're as nuts as I am LOL! I tried for, hell, I don't know how long... to come up with a solution to this completely stupid (and potentially dangerous actually) problem no luck. Will be trying again shortly with this new info.

    Give me the potentially dangerous automatic-3-blink scenario.

    400 hwy's, where there are 3 or more lanes without dividers.

    When traffic is moving fast and everyone is jockying for lanes...the 1 flash tells others that you only want one lane. Another guy changing lanes towards you, knows you are only coming over that one lane. If he sees more flashes he might have to re think his position. Everything is happening quite fast, even at acceptable speeds and not many realize it...that is why small things like this can lead to crashes.

    Really! I have never heard that before.

    I thought the scenario was going to be: Hit blinker... "NO WAIT! I CHANGE MY MIND! OH I WISH I COULD STOP ALL THAT BLINKING!" And then someone pulls out in front of you, trusting your "look at all my blinks!" Hilarity ensues.
