To clear the air a little, gaud29 contacted me via e-mail yesterday needing a bit of assistance on how to use the forum. (This isn't completely unusual: we have a few other members who have posted some really good stuff, but needed help getting started.)

I asked about the 88 mpg fill-up, and he was forthcoming about his test route, driving technique & fill method. The fill-up is a bit of a red flag: it's a very small amount. I mentioned this would generate skepticism, but he defended his method. (I'll let him speak for himself.)

As for the mods, we didn't talk about those, but I'm willing to wait & hear him out.

He's got my attention, anyway!
