I did some steady state ABA testing today.... with a .71 MPG gain!

A2= 45.15

For this little amount of work, that is a rather large gain in my book!

These results are just from the improvement in aerodynamics. Warm up gains were not counted in that .71MPG number. I do not have good data for warm up MPG gain, I do have warm up distance numbers: no grill block miles to 180F (when thermostat opens) 5 miles, with upper grill bock it is 3 miles.
