That's what I thought!!

I just got back from a trip to Montreal - took the MPGiata. Mostly I stuck to the scenic route, which added an hour to the drive each way, but it was very nice.

Parked in the city, it seemed to draw attention: I saw more than one person stop on the sidewalk to take a picture. Must be a combination of the EcoModder-branded coro wheel discs and the big-@$$ air dam.

Since my MPGuino resets multiple times per trip, I have been keeping rough tabs on my tank MPG performance by noting the odometer each time the gas gauge needle passes a mark. Not perfect, I know, but after doing this for 5 tanks, I'm starting to get a feel for the margin of error.

This tank I'm at my highest ever trip odo reading at the half tank mark. It may be yet another new record. (Touch wood!)
