new guy

Hi im Charles I'm from Ohio and recently aquired a 2001 saturn sw2 4 cyl. 5 speed.

Its my dads old car he replaced it with a saturn l300 as he needed a better looking vehicle for work(clients) not to mention his knees appreciate the taller sation wagon.

The sw2 has served him very consistantly with decent economy and few necessary repairs. My dad has to drive around the state quite a bit for work (he averages about 30K miles/year) and on the longer(multihour) drives the car has been averaging about 40-44mpg at 60mph completly stock running mobile 1 oil.

I'm very excited to start tweaking and maximizing my fuel economy I;ve already installing a vacuum gauge to give me some kind of feedback, especially with my drive to work as i drive through 2 small towns totaling 12 traffic lights over a 25 minute drive, i've been averaging just over 30mpg for my daily commute (this is pre-vacuum guage) and is much better then the 10mpg I was averaging for the same commute in my 1990 jeep Cherokee i6.

kinda long winded but I think thats about it =)
