Installed Front air dam/grill block + rear wheel skirts. I thought this would do the trick. Not so.
I thought that I felt my coasts slowing down and I think this confirms it.

Not sure if the tank filled properly. Filled at the same pump and waited till is clicked off as normal. Next tank will confirm it. Also...

Slowed it down a little, felt I was getting to fast to get into EOC. (No more 65mph)

Felt like this was a great tank. Only a few days of bad wind. Not sure when the switch to summer gas will be, but it is definitly warmer. I think that I will have to bite the bullet and do more aero mods to get out any more MPG's.

First full tank using the engine kill switch. Warmer weather, but still lots of wind. I drove much faster on this tank than the last. I drove the speed limit up hills so as not to cause a train of poor folks behind me. Going faster up the hills seemed to be easier on the car, as the RPM increased the HP. Lots of trips into town and around with two adults+two kids+junk. Also, started coming to complete stops at the country roads (well almost) in order to make safty a bigger priority that fuel economy.

Replaced belt. Installed Engine (Injector) kill switch about half-way through tank. Pretty much maxed out on EOC. Still winter gas/crappy weather.

Filled up on half-tank. Side view mirror delete completed with about 1/4 tank used. Tires still at 40 psi. Removed AC belt. Other belt is screaching like a banchie...will replace. Lots of EOC on this tank. Nasty wind though.

First Full tank of gas since purchase. No major modifications. Tires at 40psi. Engine running smoothly exept at idle where it is a little jumpy. Did a little (couple miles) EOC and coasting in neutral with engine on. 80% highway with hills with 20% city. This will be the control.
