Wow...that's alot of red tape but with any new product I guess it's necessary. Thanks for the info.

So I cruised your profile and fuel log and have a couple questions...

1. Why are you not hypermiling thru Jan. 15? Just curious (guessing you're not keeping a fuel log after Jan. 15 either so it doesn't skew your numbers when you're actually hypermiling).

2. For your vehicle mods...can you post a pic of the springloaded bird thingy? This has to be the most resourceful and odd FE instrument I've ever heard of...that's awesome!

"I use a handheld anemometer to determine the optimum mpg speed. I do not use a tach or Scangauge. I have mounted a flowerpot bird with springloaded wings on the front cowling to indicate turbulence, wind speed, wind direction and drafting sweet spot."
