Several small fill-ups:

O2 Sensor is overdue for changeout... awaiting on better weather. Many Many cold days, engine not fully warming up by the time I get to work, etc.
Rolling on studded snow tires, street tires in trunk... yay extra weight and super high rolling resistance!

MPG should be a little higher, my gas tank burped and put anywhere from a pt to a qt on the ground...

all city, a little harder driving due to traffic flow

Two fill-ups, one partial. Alignment done, plus new ball joints, both were followed by test drives not "Hipermiler" friendly. Aprox 50 miles highway, the rest City. Installation of new higher amp alternator (less engine drag) about 100 miles ago.

Base Numbers, no real modifications yet. Nearly all City driving, approx 40 miles on the highway. Timing advanced another 4 degrees to help with low RPM driving. Tires inflated to 40psi (5psi above OE). Trunk loaded down with tools.
