sorry, I understood you question only the second time I read it, hence my
belated response. I have two things to say:

1. In Cessnas, you monitor the fuel level with gauges that are inacurate at
best. So, when they show different levels, that doesn't mean the levels are
different. In our Velocities, we see the real levels.

2. Whenever there is an observed phenomenon that has no logical exlanation,
I have to conclude that something is wrong. - I know, I know. You can cover
me now with all kinds of esoteric stuff - but I'm talking engineering and
physics here, not politics or religion. <g>

PS: maybe we should apply #2 to politics and religion after all. <G>
