Took the back-road to school. About 20 miles, mixed with city. This was at a brief stoplight.

Over the weekend:
-Lexan over the fog-light holes.
- more permanent grill block-off
-2.5" cat-back exhaust, with 50-series Flowmaster

The exhaust change initially drastically lowered my mileage. It went down to 29 or so, highway. I reset the car's ECU, and now I get 35 MPG on the same 20-mile stretch of freeway.

This was the return trip. I-40 during rush hour (5:30 pm) for about 17 miles.
No tailgating. Approx 55 to 60 mph.

In the driveway, back at home.
There's a few nice hills I coast down, right off the highway.

The city EPA for this car is 18 mpg. I'm now getting ~36.4 mpg. That's 102% above, correct?
