Did the title get your attention? Good. Now here's the story:
We we returned home from Asia last year and saw that God was going to have us stay and pastor a church, one of things I NEEDED was a car. I simply asked God to let me have a good one that was affordable. To make a long story short, my friend, Bill Johnson, who happens to be the Minister of Missions at First Baptist Church, Midland, TX, deemed that I was the one that God wanted him to give a car to.
Well, it just happened to be a 1994 Cadillac Sedan de Ville. It had 114,000 miles on it, but was in good shape. It had been driven hard, but had been cared for.
Since gratefully receiving it last June, I've put a new air conditioner in it (which I new I would have to) a new set of tires, and new brakes. It runs like a top.
Last night, I had to make a hospital visit in Tulsa. Since the cold front came through, I didn't need the air conditioning, just the vent, so I thought I'd test my mileage. Once I got up to speed on the turnpike, I reset my MPG calculator.
Are you ready for this?
The FREE 1994 Cadillac got 33.1 mpg! Can you believe that? The MPG calculator also estimates how many miles you have "left" in the tank. Combined with the miles that I had already driven, I can potentially get 609 miles out of a tank of gas! That is a long way!
God is good.
