Awesome. Welcome to the club.

I dunno about 45, but I'm pretty sure you can crack 40. I came within a hair's breadth of it once, hope to do it again ere long.

Yeah, those modest little pickups, from when "small truck" still meant "small." I don't know what the heck it means now, but it sure ain't "small." You can hypermile the heck out of those things and they really deliver when you start softpedaling them.

+1 on the "why don't you just buy x" argument. That drives me nuts. The name of the site is EcoMODDER, not EcoSHOPPER. We're trying to make the best of what's in the driveway, not on the dealer lot.

What have you got under the hood, the KA24? I hope you like it, because you're probably stuck with it. You'll die before it does, unless something amazing happens: Second Coming, meteor impact, etc. The KA24 is right up there with the Toyota 22r and the small block Chevy.

Lead or follow. Either is fine.
