bennelson, had you started with a VW rabit IDI based truck your baseline woulda been 40 mpg. what dia is the fan from the metro, is it able to keep the s-10 radiator cool under heavy load?
sideways hinging - good one! it will eliminate some problems. we still dont know at which speed you will be driving..?
