Correct. It ended up averaging 28.9 mpg over the entire tank of gas.

Now for the mods for the return trip and continued efficiency.
Before:



And after, with the addition of the Mach1 chin spoiler, and a lower grille block. The chin spoiler is plastic, and the grille block is aluminum. It's from my 93 Grand Marquis, and I had to invert it so it would fit better.



These two alone should get me really close to 30 mpg.
I'm also adding two aluminum panels between the bottom of the bumper cover, and the control arms. That should fill in the gaps from the cross-member forward.



Hopefully, they'll be installed tonight. We'll see.
Another trip to Indy is scheduled on Monday. I'm really trying for 30 mpg.
