Well, the root-word for "turbo" is the French word turbine, which is short for "explosivement le moteur très rapidement".

Hence, it MUST be French as green-onion chip-dip.

LR,

I dunno if the site does this all the time, but I noticed the gas cap thread has become very difficult to navigate. Indeed, I can't see past post #25, no matter what I do for Display Modes.

And, I have never been allowed to edit my posts.

The team was Swiss not German. Didn't you spend any time talking to them?
