Your modest, too, I see.

I just took a peek at your Civic wagon MPG stats and was floored! I thought I was playing the "game" quite well at around 44mpg combined and 55mpg highway, but to get 70mpg+ is mind blowing.

So, Gas Fumes, are you doing that by the seat of your pants driving technique or are you using any instrumentation?

Could you post pics of how you designed/installed your front grill block, please?
