actually, the 80mph comment also showed the state of mind of the poster. Along with his 'safty' comments.

Long ago, I learned "if you cant afford to properly repair and maintain it, don't buy the toy to start with"
This rule applies to:
expensive watches......THE CRYSTAL IS HOW MUCH??????????
expensive clothes.......DRY CLEANING IS $%000 for this shirt???????
Big XXX Trucks......IT ONLY GETS X MPG?????????
Expensive Sports Cars.........PLUGS ARE HOW MUCH?????????

anyone one who can buy a big 4x4 is old enough to realize that gas isn't going to get any cheaper....ever.

The majority of mpg inprovemnent is 'Adjusting the nut behind the wheel'.
I can drive the most effecient car on this forum and completly trash the mpg.
I can also drive that 4x4 and get 25% over factory epa.
There is absolutely NOTHING mechanical you can do that would give you a better improvement than slowing down and driving smarter

you come in telling us you 'have to drive 80......' and you've already set the tone of the conversation.
MetroMPG: "Get the MPG gauge - it turns driving into a fuel & money saving game."

First: ScangaugeII

Second: Grille Block

Third: Full underbelly pan

Fourth: rear skirts and 30.4mpg on trip!
