This isn't about one of the 65+ ecomodding tips directly. I notice when viewing the page, the "topic" icons and some of the thread links don't work. I wasn't around for it, but I gather there was a forum software migration that changed all the paths from "forum.ecomodder.com/" to "ecomodder.com/forum".

The topic icons are coded as "http://forum.ecomodder.com/images/em-skin/statusicon/forum_new.gif" but changing the path to "http://ecomodder.com/forum/images/em-skin/statusicon/forum_new.gif" works. I think the same issue is at work in the 100+ hypermiling/ecodriving tips page.

I suggest adding converting to LED lighting for headlights, taillights, reverse lights, turn signals, brake lights, licence plate lights, dash lights, etc to the list of 65+ mods for improved efficiency under the electrical section. When I converted my headlights, taillights, license plate lights and parking lights on my 2005 Civic to LED, I noticed that turning on the headlights no longer bogs down the engine at idle. I then converted to all LED lighting. As for a mileage increase, not sure, but it definitely didn't hurt
