Yup, another record!

Best fill yet! A hair below 54 MPG US = 4.4 L/100 km.

It sure seems like 55 MPG is a realistic target, if I'd just get off my lazy butt and do a few more aero mods.

Truth is, I'd rather cruise a little bit faster and take 50 MPG. I need more reliable instrumentation to be able to do that though.


A guy asked me about the wheel discs at the gas station yesterday. They draw more attention on this car than any other car I've put them on. (Which is all of them.)
Latest mods test: 15 mods = 15% MPG improvement: A-B test, 2007 Honda Civic 1.8L, 5-speed
