Aeromodded Civic VX 72mpg (image heavy)



My Dad's car! Last three tank average is 72mpg. He tried to start a fuel log but he can't logon. He is having trouble getting ahold of the moderators to reset his password, but I will try to answer questions. It may be slow responses because I may need to call him for answers.

Front bumper is abs. Under tray is 10mm coroplast screwed to 1/8"x2" aluminum flat. The rear elements are all sheet aluminum.

This is the prototype for the adjustable cooling shutters. They are separately adjustable for radiator and A/C condenser.

This is the new version on my uncle’s VX. I guess they decided the separate shutters were not necessary.
