First tank hypermiling! WOOT!

Got the first tank since starting this quest, and I'm frankly surprised at the difference.

Gallons: 8.31
Miles: 328.3
39.5MPG!

Thats right up there with my personal best tank, and that was obtained pure highway. I typically average 27MPG in mixed driving.

Just made my second aero mod. Like the wiper delete, it was also free. Got some blue foam insulation from a construcion site (scrap-I got permission) and fabricated a grille block. Time will tell if this is enough to push me across the big 4-oh!
