Well, the tank was still 2/3 full, but I decided to fill it up this morning just to get some preliminary numbers. No significant change in mileage. However, we've also had a cold snap (high 20s instead of low 40s on the last commuting fill up) this week and I've had to spend some time letting it warm up in the morning so I could see well enough to drive. I'll report more over the next couple months.

ECONORAM: I had previously seen your post and it gave me some ideas for mounting the belly pan. You may notice I'm using the same predrilled steel flat bar, which I used 1/4" spring nuts and screws to attach everything.

GoodOak: I used Corex sheet (essentially the same as Coroplast) for both panels. I picked up several sheets for about $16 per 4mm thick 4'x8' sheet from a local plastic supplier.
