I have been lurking for about 2 months now doing different things to my car to help out. I drive about 110 miles a day round trip for work so every last drop of fuel counts. I am getting around 40mpgs right now with just changing my driving habits and putting some more air in the tires. The car is an automatic so that does not help. The latest thing I have done is removed the power steering pump belt to see if it would be beneficial to remove it altogether. Also I bought another upper gril off ebay, and plan on fiberglassing it smooth to reduce drag by a little. I am also planning on some underbelly pans especially in the rear, as the rear bumper is like a parachute on this thing. Any advice would be much appreciated.
