First full tank with engine tuned up. Getting used to my commute. UltraGauge seems to be reporting about 10% high on trip MPG, but I haven't spent time calibrating it yet. Mostly DWL, no EOC.

Car was in the shop for a couple weeks. Me being careful (not trusting the Honda dealership) and getting another opinion saved me about $2000. Anyways, got it tuned up and fixed the spark-knock problem.

Nothing much new. Experimenting with DFCO engine braking more. Haven't aired up tires in about a month. Also lots of rain.

Got an UltraGauge! This thing really helps. Also, did some EOC. First tank with the Mobil1 0W20 and Pennzoil Synchromesh. Also had the spark plugs tightened up; they were loose. Best tank yet!

More of the same. Mostly highway driving, some at high speed ~75-80 mph (In a hurry). Also removed the "trunk cover" in the back (~10lbs).

Had begun researching some hypermiling techniques. Mainly began coasting into stoplights / signs a lot more, and slowing down early trying to time stoplights so I'd catch 'em green.
