Looking at the adjusted returns for VFSTX, I'm thinking ING too. Although I was thinking that you could put the smaller portion in Orange Savings, and maybe CD-ladder the rest. Since you most likely won't dip into the larger portion, you'll get good yields that are more dependable than the bond fund - eventually it'll all be 5yr CD's. If the emergency occurs, you'll take a bit of a penalty with the current returns for the CD(or CD's), but the price fluctuation of the bond fund carries a risk for untimely withdrawl that seems greater.
