Hey cool! I'm in a similar place...I just filled up on my first post-ecomodder tank and got about 29.5mpg for 100% city EOC but lots of neutral coasting, paying more attention to how stale lights are, and less braking/harder turns. While at the gas station I inflated my tires up to about 36psi (recommended 32, max sidewall 40--I decided to start halfway), so hopefully that will help some. I'll keep working on the "nut behind the wheel." Still pondering the SGII or MPGuino. So even though 29.5 is only about 1% better than EPA's combined rating, it is about 17% better than the EPA city rating (which was what I got before in city driving)...improvement!
