I've been on this site before but decided to join today after looking more closely at it. A great source of help and info. I have been attempting to squeeze every inch out of every fuel molecule since 1997. That year I bought a 1994 Chrysler LHS with a driver Information center. What fun it was understanding how it worked and how I could use it to work for me. I learned how to get the most out of that car. Chicago to home and 30.0 mpg pulling into the driveway, driving at 65-70 nearly the entire way. Those downhills in PA were sweet! Every car I have had since then have had DIC's. I wouldn't know what to do without one.

I presently drive a (don't pre-judge me!) '00 Cadillac Seville SLS with the Northstar 275 HP engine and 122k miles. I drive 27.3 miles each way to school and average just over 30mpg over some hilly terrain. My best one way trip is 34.8. When I tell people, they think I am looney, but it is true and I have the records to prove it.

I look forward to having fun and learning new things here.
