This weekend I filled up again after driving slower. This time 45.7 mpg. A new personal best. So this is my base mpg before mods.

So I stripped the roof rail off, and 4 out of 5 roof antenna bases. The car used to belong to an archeologist and they had some sort of GPS antenna system on the roof. I left the factree antenna until I get another. I patched all 10 holes with duct tape for now.

Filled tires to 41 psi. Changed the oil. I noticed my power steering and water pump belt was super loose. No wonder I had poor steering parking. New belt ordered.
