Build Thread:
Current Mods: Removed the factory mud guards. Installed a ScanGauge II (2/26/11) and have been using that to improve my fuel economy.

I started car pooling 3/28/11, so my car's fuel economy is not as impressive (at least on the surface) as it used to be, but I am saving lots of gas and $$! I have had two passengers commuting with me each day since March 2011.

Since June of 2011, I have been over-inflating the tires by 3 psi. At first I was skeptical that this would make any real difference, but it did boost my fuel economy noticeably, so I've continued that practice.

Planned Mods: I'd like to add an extension to the front air dam and attach flush panels to the underneath of the car. The air dam would need to be removable since I often drive through deep snow in the winter.
