Ecky, I am glad you are willing to take this on and the Aerocivic didn't just go the the crusher. When you get it sorted and are able to take highway trips I hope you will continue to post some mpg numbers "with no hypermiling" as that would highlight the aerodynamics of the car over driver skill using EOC and other techniques.
