I just found this forum. I'm a long time alternative fuel guy, with 30+ years of race car, economy tuning and fabrication experience. I'm interested in all of it.

My very first car, a 1966 Mustang with a 200 cubic inch six was modified for exceptional fuel economy. I raised the compression to 11.7 to 1, removed the stock 1 barrel carb and installed a progressive 2 barrel Weber. (plenty of other mods too). The MPG went from 23-25 to 32. And, that was my first attempt!

More recently I've been driving modern diesels with 42MPG. I still own an older Rabbit diesel too.
