Weather has turned cold, trying a warm air intake for this and the next tank.
WOAH! Looks to be nearly as bad with WAI as when towing!

Getting back in the groove, weather is getting colder and temps are lower than ideal. Will have to fully block upper grille, and experiment with blocking side portions of lower grille.
Will remove rubber 'bump' strips down the side of the car also.

Some towing, then some overheating, then an alternator brush cracked and fell into the oil seal on the vacuum pump.
Put the old girl out of action for a while, but she's up and running once more!

Have moved my place of work - it's now only 5km away from home, and in a 40km/h zone for schools (that's 3 miles and 25mph)
Because of which the economy sucks as the engine isn't getting up to temperature on the journey. I have re-fitted my upper grille block to help.
Now that I'm a bit stronger (got real sick) I will be attempting to ride my bike to work instead.

- Fitted front air dam (4" lower than stock)
- Removed rear mud flaps.
- Removed upper grille block (too hot), now have no grille blocks.

Improvement (I think) because of driver changes, less traffic (school holiday time), and warmer weather.

Used pretty much a full tank towing the S13 around on a tandem axle trailer, probably ~1500kg worth.
Towing really sucks, it's going to be hard work getting my % back!

Diesel pump turned *way* down. Probably too far, as I needed more throttle + revs to stay moving.

Auckland, it's hilly.
