Thanks, vortex. Will check that out.

Will! Good to hear from you. (Got your PM and will respond.)

Old Tele: I agree -- it feels that way to me!

Next year's goal ...

The car is coming off the road in a week or so.

It was great to be able to hit 50 this year, but of course modding will continue next year.

2018's goal is to be able to increase my cruising speed a little bit and still get ~50 MPG tanks on those scenic routes with 80 km/h (50 mph) speed limits. As it is, I'm only getting to 50 by pulling up the average in the ex-urban sections (where the limits are a bit lower & there are more opportunities for E.O.C.). It would be nice to be able to accomplish 50+ without as much laser focus on eco-driving techniques. Enjoy the scenery even more!
