Tried to run the speed limit-5 over tops
Tank looked like it would come up with less miles than usual looking at the gauge, but ~100 miles of Highway may have gotten things back in order.
Fan controller came in but not installed on this tank so partial grill block was used.

-Worked on putting together an entire lower grill block, but electric fan not working so I opened it up to roughly 1/4 of the lower radiator exposed. Once fan controller comes in I will block more aggressively and try again
-Spent more time at idle than usual due to trouble shooting electric fan issue while testing grill block.

*Accidentally reset trip odometer part way thru tank, went back using actual odometer readings. Now I set the trip meter and record the actual odometer. Both read the same so far. This tank MAY have actually been closer to 37mpg, but I will stick with these numbers for now.
90% city driving
Rained almost entire week
Coasting, shifting at 2K religiously, start only when ready etc. NO ecomods, still no tuneup.

NO tuneup, tires need replaced, only maintenance done was to steering and brakes
Tire Pressure maxed at 7 miles on tank
New "aerodynamic" windshield wiper blades LOL
Learning shift points and coasting, shifted at 2K RPM when I thought about it and coasted when I could.
NO P&G or EOC except in parking lots and driveway.
(edited) I found that the trip odo. was off more than I thought, recalculated accordingly
