I am back from my annual gaspésie trip and I completed my goal of having a 1300km+ tank I could have done 1400km if I wanted to go very low on my tank

thank you: I got those result because I sacrificed a lot of avg speed on the hyw but I dont care.
nearly 100% of my driving is p&g EOC and try coast to every stop and red light at the minimal speed to do a bump start

I can not tell a %improvement with the ewp but I noticed a small difference in acceleration but the real gain is having no belt on 200km and less trip
and it reduce the warmup time

Great results with the mileage you have been getting.
unfortunately the kamm back partially detached on the hyw because of the sun heating the tape. and I removed it on a hyw exit.
