IGL - '04 Saturn Ion
90 day: 41.54 mpg (US)
Thanks: 5

So, guys, I've made my first mod! I ended up doing a partial belly pan, while deleting the air scoop under the bumper cover... Car runs less than 5* hotter, and it now takes only 27.5-29% load to keep 55mph... Instant readings at 55mph are in the 48-50mpg range...

Best part, is I already had the 4x8' sheet of coro, so this mod only cost me $3(screws)
Once I figure out something for hosting my images, I'll post some pics of what I've got...

There you are, tomorrow I will cut into the wiring so I can tow the L next week with the motorhome.
Very nice mileage by the way.

I have been using Flickr for pic hosting, or ask Doax or MetroMPG about uploading directly, I know some changes were made but have forgotten
