Return trip data is even better. I taped the entire front grill (previously left a lower scoop open).

33.4 mpg average over 45 miles!
45.2% ABOVE EPA!!!
Average speed of 52 (only lengthened my trip from 0.7 to 0.8 hours).
Return trip cost of $4.44 at 1.35 gallons burned.

Since my modifications yesterday, I average [COLOR="rgb(255, 0, 255)"]32.3 MPG!![/COLOR]
Thats over 2.1 driving hours (highway, hilly) over 111 miles at 52 mph.

Taping the entire grill area netted an extra 2.3 MPG.
No change in engine temp. Max temp was ~212 F, like usual. Outside temp ~ 50 F.
(All data taken from ScanGauge.)

This trip usually costs me 3/4 of a 16 gallon tank -> $39.60
This time -> $11.3
Loves me some ecomods!
