I started the day stupidly early by driving the van in to San Francisco to spend the day in the office. I got to drive over the new Bay Bridge, but it's partly surfaced in concrete, so you can be forgiven for missing the fact that it's new. It seems to have fixed the traffic getting out of the city on to the bridge though... you now get to sit in traffic by Emeryville.
When I was on my way back to the van, I saw a Brammo Empulse on charge at the electric charger in the parking lot:
I'd like one, but the freeway range is listed at ~55 miles, so I'm not sure that'd be much use for me.
In related news, the van did just under 18mpg on the trip there and back (over 200 miles, including a bunch of slow traffic), so I'm guessing that the oxygen sensor has fixed my mileage problems.
