4) consider: (a) grill block (use SG or UG to tell you how much opening you really need); (b) wheel covers (hub caps cause vortices!); (c) cut back of A/C, etc..

"Welcome aboard!"
I got the tires pumped up enough so I can run over a dime and tell you what year it is

I drive a 05 Mustang GT, I started performance modding it when it was new, most of that helped fuel economy, the tune in the computer is more " efficient "than the stock one,less restrictive air intake, free"er" flowing exhaust
I put on a chin spoiler too. I'll post some photos when I have enough posts
the only thing I have done that would hurt my HWY MPG was replacing the Stock 3.31 rear gear with a 3.73 ( But it is a lot more fun when not" eco driving"'
the cluster has average mpg and some other stuff, I tested the gauge with doing the math its right on.
