you miss the point. This topic has been brought up before. The web site is "ECOMODDER"
not "BUY A POS MPG CAR". there are corvettes, jeeps, 4x4 work trucks here along with Prius etc. This site is about doing the best with what you got. It's really more about attitude than who gets the best mpg.
I drive a 02 Infiniti Q45 w/340 hp and 0-60 in under 6 sec. BUT I drive for mpg like it's a video game that I am not going to lose. Prior to coming her I was getting 27mpg on round trips (23epa). thanks to this site I can now get 31mpg on the same round trip.
But some guy from NewZeland was bashing me for not buying an econ box and saving the world. He too, missed the point.
I and others here admire a guy who is so enthusiastic about trying to improve the FE in his choosen 'pig'!
Frankly, it takes some balls to ecomod so publicly on a given pig! And it sounds like he NEEDS that kinda pig. Unlike most who buy that model who never even use the 4 wheel drive or see dirt more than 3 feet for the sidewalk!


Also, your opinion is probably discredited since you haven't posted your car or any milage logs
MetroMPG: "Get the MPG gauge - it turns driving into a fuel & money saving game."

First: ScangaugeII

Second: Grille Block

Third: Full underbelly pan

Fourth: rear skirts and 30.4mpg on trip!
