Nothing new with the ZX2. College has been winding down and I have been in finals-mode for over a week... Just ready to get them over with!

I had a good mpg day, with it being sunny, dry and warm here in NC.



This was the return trip from school today over 32.5 miles of country side. Only my third long trip over 50!

All thanks to P&G

The trip to school was only 46.0, which was due in part to an 18-wheeler that didn't want to pass me I cruised around 50 mph the whole way.

Thank you for the kind words OG VX! It is nowhere near as refined as yours, but it might get there one day

I have my sights set on 100+% over EPA this summer!

I've had 3 50+ mpg trips the past three days. 52.5, 51.6 & 50.5! This tank is sitting at 48 mpg.

And before you say my ScanGauge is off, it read 46.7, and my fill was 46.66, just 0.04 mpg off for my last tank

So I had some discouraging things happen today. One is that I broke a valve cover bolt clean in two while making sure they were tight As if it don't leak oil enough... I discovered a crack starting in my exhaust manifold as well. This means I can go one of two ways. One is to put a N/A header on for the time being, and then sell it and swap on a turbo manifold. Or just go turbo now Which I would if I could get a kit for cheap...
