It's a great idea ... let's create a category & run a competition. Seems to me Ecomodding trucks along the lines of Ton Miles Per Gallon would be brilliant.
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.
