Update :
I did 93 MPG coming back from south of Montreal :

I filled up recently and did 65.23 MPG. What I remember of my Averages is about 5 or 6% better that my fillup result. My 80+ MPG trips were only in the end of the tank, the first trips were in colder temps and had significantly lower MPG. The lowest trip was around 58 MPG.

I also started my Kammback Extension Mod. It is made of lexan and strenghtened by an aluminium frame. It will be hold up by coroplast support and will be attached by bungie cord on the trunk. The extension is connected with the other part of the kammback by hinges, so ye can open the kammback to have an access to the trunk.

This is the angle of the kammback from the rear :

From the side :

I also removed the Power-Steering Pump. It weighted around 10 lbs.

Best Tank (1557.2 Km): 2.57 LHK (91.63 MPG (US) )
Best Highway Trip (~36.8 Km): 2.16 LHK (109 MPG (US) )
Best Commute Trip avg (73.8 Km ): 2.33 LHK (101 MPG (US) )
