    My C5 (Automatic) gets great mileage. Low to mid 20's around town. On the highway I usually see 28. Much better than a dually!

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott A Roth says:

    Get an MGB…

    All my Chevy vehicles get AC Delco parts.

    Great video as always, but just a side note. Just because the plugs are the same, does not mean the pin out is the same. 🙂

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars StratTone says:

    Those C5s get good gas mileage for what it is. I got 20 easy in town in my ‘99 and hit 30 on a trip I took to Indiana.

    After looking at the rural driveway to your garage and that palm fern that won't die, I'm not convinced a Vet is in your future. 🙄

    i saw someone rack one of these once and total it since the bottom is entirely fiber glass except the lift points lol

    The corvette is the most embarrassing car america has ever made

    It's amazing what the OBD data can show when someone who knows what it means interprets it! Excellent video.

    Bosch o2 sensors fail 6 out of every 10. I either use oem or ngk

    Ray..if you don't hear this enough I'll say it you are a damn fine mechanic. A great mechanic if you will. I wish every mechanic was like you and did things the way they should be done. Even though you will never work on one of my vehicles, because I live in canada 🇨🇦 know that I would bring all of my vehicles to you. Thank you for being such a great guy, I'm sure you don't hear that enough..

    "Oh shit, Gravity works!"
    Thanks Robin Williams, one of my favorite lines of all time,

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dick Mick says:

    I owned a C6 which I drove to work. I was able to average 25mph from work to home. The Corvettes do well especially if the commute isn't in town!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MonkeyJedi99 says:

    Well, at least it was an easy place to access. (sarcasm)

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dwight Yost says:

    Ray I had a 97 for 6 years they are ok for a day out looking cool but beyond that not useful.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jeff lauharn says:

    Yes! Approaching 40 is a perfect time to treat yourself. Don't wait till your too old to enjoy it. At 60 I would have a hard time getting in it.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Pence says:

    Treat yourself Bro, Ive dailyed an early 2k Porsche since 2010, absolute blast to drive and easy as hell to work on….

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars He was dead when I got there says:

    I get 38 mpg in my Abarth ; )

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Caniglia says:

    I notice you wear your metal wedding ring. Not a safety issue?

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tim D says:

    I was thinking you'd have some "home made" O2 sensor extension cables and just swap them electrically, not physically. Maybe that'd be something to consider.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars B Thomas says:

    Thanks Ray Ray!

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Micheal Allman says:

    In my humble opinion, you should have cleared that trouble code prior to your test drive. That would have given the opportunity for the computer to have picked up a different code if something else may have been going on or you accidentally bumped something. You could’ve checked your pending codes afterwards and been even more confident that there was no issue when you’re giving that car back to the customer.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sienile says:

    I have a '93 Altima. Back when those Corvettes were new, I raced and beat one in it. That guy was pissed that his 2 year old sports car was stomped by a 13 year old family sedan.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ox ee says:

    LOL Shitty Chevys make the shop a lot of money.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steven Abbott says:

    Back in the day we had to listen to an engine and tell what it was doing

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RacingRocks12 says:

    My 1995 C4 corvette averaged 27 MPG just an FYI. Still my daily.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rab Reid says:

    am i the only one that after watching so many of theses that i am doing the phone noise too

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GARY OSBORNE says:

    Actually a Vette is fairly economical to drive. I would not call it an economy car BUT my 2006 Vette gets well over 20 MPG….actually between 24 around town and 28 on highway. They require premium fuel which definitely costs a little more but I have 7 cars and the Vette is my most economical. Oooops wait a minute. One of my cars is a Model A Ford and it costs nothing to drive. But the Vette is cheaper than my Mercedes, Cobra, F 250, Jag and Lincoln Mark VII. If you are not driving a 100 miles round trip to work and back daily, then consider a Vette a fun car for a daily driver.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MARTIN KARLSSON says:

    If a police would've stopped you in a situation such as this. Could you not argue that you are a mechanic scanning for data and or looking for certain behaviors with that particular vehicle?
    I mean the law is the law, but perhaps they have oversight when it comes to that, if they are descent people.
    Also as a curiosity would you get the ticket or the company that you work for?
    I think over here the company deals with at least parking tickets and such. (or my boss is just the best)

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Stump says:

    Poor DieselTechRon worked on Super Duties but chose a VW Bug for his long commute!
    I used to drive Cadillacs, and I admit the F250 7.3 Diesel I now drive is not even close, comfort wise, but all things considered, I think it’s a good choice.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig Quann says:

    I'm in the same boat. Love a sports car… But too many damn kids! Though I did manage to buy my 2nd place dream vehicle. Bought a brand new 4×4 GMC Sierra back in 2017…. Looking at keeping it for another 10 years or more.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig Quann says:

    Lol. That restart with the new sensor would have pissed me off too… Lol. Though I would have assumed it was some "idle relearn" bs or something….

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Randy Oehlert says:

    Worked for dealership 30 year's left there opened my Custom Hot Rods shop 10 year's ago.
    Lots more fun.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Randy Oehlert says:

    Find you a Corvette we can build it to any specs you want.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Blalock says:

    C5 corvette is one of my dream cars.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jean Meslier says:

    It is exactly 50 miles from my driveway to my parking at work, thus a 100 mile daily commute. Right through the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, plus the 20 miles of Interstate. I always drove the biggest vehicle I could afford. Ford 3/4 ton, 3/4 ton Suburban, then when the Dodge Cummins came out, it was a 1 ton dually for ten years. Why? I saw too many lighter, smaller vehicles totally destroyed by wrecks. I wanted as much steel around me as possible.. Several of us older guys with long commutes drove big pick ups just for that reason.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars F Z says:

    Bosch, and several other German quality brands, have slowly declined since the 90s. Seems like they all decided, that after the East bloc opened up, mixing former West Germany quality with the low standards of the East is a "Good idea" and they all went for it.
    Sad to see so many brand names, that used to be synonymous with quality, slowly turning into Harbor Freight….

    In my industry, we switched from Bosch (amongst others) power tools to buying actual H.F. tools during the late 90s and early 00s. We averaged about 6 to 8 similar HF tools for the price of one "West German" tool BUT over tripled (sometimes 5x) the overall lifespan of the tool.
    The result of our 5+ year "study/experiment" was frustratingly sobering… Especially for us as a Germany based company.
    It was painful to watch, at least for us old timers who were used to the cold war quality of western products.

    – Old person rant over –

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Callaghan says:

    Brilliant video Ray, and well done on not getting caught out on the "full load" test, as brief as it was! Remember…….

    When the Blue Lights appear, do not fear,
    Drop a Gear, and disappear ! 😉

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shilah Puppers says:

    Get a Vette! Should do reasonable mpg on the highway due to aerodynamics.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edward Weese says:

    I'm retired now. My first Corvette was a 5 year old 1960 daily driver that I had for about 5 years, sold when my child was born. Second was a 1976 that was about 15 years old and was a 2nd car. Much easier to work on the 60 than the 76. I can't even imagine my getting another Vette now nor doing any work on them. I appreciate seeing the technical level of expertise that's required to fix cars today and the skill involved in repairing them. Great Job!!!

    Perfect midlife crisis tool
