Still driving really slowly, so slowly it was on the verge of pissing off the world + excessive amounts of coasting and VERY VERY little braking... 500 miles (or more actually) on motorways with a car full of bikes, and first UNDERTRAY tank.

17% Dino 83% Petro Diesel, 46.2L used from my tank, topped up with 26l from my barrels and 15l of Dino from a petrol station.

Motorway speeds were 45 to 70mph (lots of trucks are now limited to 50 to save fuel costs)

Awaiting next tank to confirm undertray result

Normal driving - bit of motorway /suburban /city

Only surviving ecomods - grille block & front tyre deflectors. No real Hypermiling driving style.

Just replaced a sticking brake so next tank will hopefully be much better.
