I guess should I do anything groundbreaking, Iíll have to stop being lazy and actually test my work...
I am about the same. But cars are all different. The testing focus is one of the cooler features of this community.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
