Well, folks. I've seen some of the coldest temps we get around here. One trip home this last tank was at -13F. That's right folks, don't forget to notice the little dash mark in front of that temp. The high we had was about 25F. Tank average came out to be 13.78MPG. Which in my opinion is not bad at all. Just shy of EPA in some nasty weather.

The Partial Warm Air Intake is a great way to hold on to some of that heat from the last trip. I've seen intake temps in the 60F-100F after 30min-1 1/2hrs of sitting. It sucks it in and speed up the re-warming time drastically.

Adjusted for my driving habits. 80%city/20%Highway.
20mpg city/30mpg highway or bust! Check out my mods so far
