Was briefly at 70.0 tank average as I did my morning drive this A.M. ... climbing the final hill put me back to 69.9 ... I have the flat decklid spoiler back on, and it just seems to work as tested at El Mirage: I coast notably further, not radically, but significantly. If my deepcycle battery from Odyssey were not prematurely failing so I have to run the alternator all the time, I think I would be over 70 mpg right now. New battery from a different maker is on the way.

I have maybe 1.5 or 2.0 gallons left to burn and a 60-mile freeway trip to make for work today... moment of truth.

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.
