Well stumbled across this forum while browsing for a new hybrid in the near future hopefully, and loving all the useful tips and tricks to squeeze more mpg out of regular cars, and been trying them out hopefully to see a increase here next fill up!

Welcome! Be sure to tell us all how your improvements pan out; especially: any adjusting of the nut behind the wheel that we all go through!

thanks ! yeah thats the hardest part changing how ya drive, a little easier to do in the element, since its slow. but removed the roof rack and already notice since last fill up a 1-1.5 mpg increase, aired up the tires and driving slower for hopefully more improvements

the rsx a little harder since its hard to drive it slow its 300hp but trying to see what kinda mpg i can squeeze out
