Btw, I never said my goals...

The short term goal is to have 50+mpg tank. I have already had a 54 mpg trip and a few in the 46-49 range. I am going to have to replicate that continuously while refining my techniques... might have to wait till next year though. The cooler weather is already having a negative effect

The long term goal is to achieve a 75 mpg tank. With the automatic transmission. Yep, my eyes are set on reaching 200% above the EPA compined FE figures for this vehicle. Likely? Nope. But I'll never know the true limits of my set up unless I try!
