3rd fill: 45 MPG

45.1 MPG US = 5.2 L/100 km

From just under the 1/2 mark, clicked off until I could see fuel in the neck, like last time.

More mods!

Previously done: 50 PSI; AC/PS belt delete; partial grille block; passenger mirror delete; front license plate relocated.

More mods added during the last tank: MPGuino; full front air dam; LRR Dunlop Enasaves on front wheels; driver's side mirror delete; synth 5w30 oil change.

Coming soon: timing advance; wheel discs; test rolling resistance of Enasaves vs. the tires it came with before changing the rears.

I swear I'm going to start a mods thread.

Driving style: same as last tank. Weather got cooler though.

MPGuino fail: I couldn't calibrate the MPGuino -- it keeps randomly freezing/resetting and losing the tank data. It's still extremely useful to have onboard for trip-by-trip numbers though.

And based on trip numbers vs. this tank result, it's dialled in reasonably closely.

THANKS, AntiochOG for sending me your Miata MPGuino settings.
