good thing too, as i have 1200 miles of driving on my vacation.

Unfortunately, that means my next tank will have a huge jump in mpg, and i wont be able to pinpoint which items helped the most. Oh well, im at 43mpg now, we'll see what 44psi vs 32 in the tires, a little more grillblock, drivers mirror delete, cleaning up the half blocked egr, and the 25% reduction in cruising rpms and 6.25 pound lighter clutch/flywheel do for it
47 highway. (Tank average for your whole vacation trip.)
