I stumbled upon this here site while looking for fuel saver mods for my truck and figured I'd register so I can ask questions and all depending on what I do. I drive almost 50 miles to work, so over the past year or two I've been trying to squeeze whatever I can out of my cars.

My fair weather cruiser is an '88 Grand Marquis, that averages 23mpg out of a 5.0L 302 V8. I've hit 25mpg on a few tanks under the right conditions.

My current (winter) driver is a '94 F150, and I've managed to pull 18mpg out of the ol' 300 I6. Would like to squeeze more out of her, but I'm still trying to perfect the stick shift and winter weather isn't helping me out...

Hope to gather a little something from y'all while I'm hanging out.
