Looks great, but you might need some washers around your bolts and zip ties.

All the bolts and screws have washers and I didn't use zip ties last time on the piece together one and it worked with no issues.

Oh wow is all I can say. So this last tank is finally up, and can I say what a difference. I drove probably what a normal person does everyday and dropped my MPG down to 25. That to me is crazy I only got 292 miles on the tank. I have been averaging almost 30-32 mpg at 5 mpg more I get almost 55 more miles a tank that's huge considering I make one trip every week that is 60 miles I basically get a free trip. Ok baseline is done I'm ordering a heating pad today due to the cold temperatures, even with the car being in the garage. that will help out a ton.

Farkle (also spelled “farkel”) is a term common among adventure motorcyclists. Enthusiasts will “farkle up” their motorcycles with aftermarket accessories such as radar detectors, GPS units, tall windscreens, steering stabilizers, carbon fiber bits, cushy aftermarket seats, and so on.

The idea is to upgrade your bike (car) in order to improve its capability and style, which can, if one is not careful, become costly. With a little research (and maybe some helpful suggestions here), affordable farkles are within reach! So, make it comfortable. Make it flashy. Make it safe. And make it yours. Enticed? I bet.-

You just FARKLED the Sparkle!

Well I will just say the rain sucks for P&G wanted to try out the 70-80% engine load on pulses and i only got 35 mpg on my short 20 mile trip coming home. I mean still 10 miles mpg better then regular driving is awesome. The rain just sucks.

Rain really kills my fuel economy too. I assume rolling resistance is a lot higher even when there's only a bit of water on the roads? Anyhow, it's not uncommon for me to lose 10-20% of my fuel economy.

Well I got a few things in the mail today. First off I got my 150W oil pan heater so I will be installing it here in the next day or so. Tired of driving to work, and getting poor mileage due to a cold engine. Second I have been slowly converting my car over to the SiR version, and I got my final piece in today. The gauge cluster, which is really cool because the MPH/KPH are backwards. I have had a JDM cluster before that was strictly KPH this one has both so its pretty cool.

Well I got the pad in, but the RTV needs to set for 24 hours so tomorrow morning will be the first test. 150w heater for two hours should do the trick.
