Well so far so good. I just filled up today and got 30.7 mpg. Ive never ever gotten 30 or more going back and forth to work. Hopefully when I go downstate and back on Sunday Ill gain a mpg or two as well.

Oh yeah when I got home tonight, I cleaned out the trunk. There was more in there than I had thought. 3 steering knuckles, 2 brake rotors, 1 wheel bearing, and a partridge in a pear tree, 2 drive axles, an old trailer hitch and drawbar, 2 jacks, 1 full size spare, my little girl's stroller, a metal shelving unit from the side of the road, a load of 2x4 scraps, paint cans and bondo and stuff from when I fixed the rust 2 years ago, some spare oil, tranny fluid, brake fluid. I kept the spare, wrench, and 1 jack, and the fluids. I probably dropped at least 150 lbs. Maybe thatll help future tanks too.
