This isn't mine, but looks just like it:

I was thinking about doing something to the front bumper / grill using some aluminum in the 1/8" to 1/16" range. What would you guys do?

I typically drive very short distances under 5 miles usually so my MPG sucks usually. But 1/2 the miles are on the freeway, so I thought I could benefit a little from some aero mods, and I'd really benefit on the occasional longer trip.

But with your short range, local driving the only real gains you are going to make are by Pulse and Glide or getting a lighter car.

I know that costs $$$. Thats the reason I have a 10 yr old Camry and not a 5 yr old Prius.

2000 Camry CE 5 speed 128+K. Best 37.0, Goal is to break thru 36 consistently(Attained). New Goal 38.
ScanGauge II, Unibrow(1 wiper) Air Intake, Mud flap delete, 3.5+" Front Spoiler, Full Moon Hubcaps(Lost). Upper Grille block. (New and improved Fall edition)
