no new mods. just doing engine off coasting a lot and keeping speeds down.

I am going to think of ways to lighten up the car more and see if it helps me get to 70 mpgs. I want to do a lot to the car like front air dam and a underbelly just cant swing the funds to do much right now.

thanks Don

Drove slow. engine off coasting. where i could i would just idol in 5th gear cruising about 30mph.

Side Mirror in except when i had to go into tyler twice for Doctor visits. Im learning more and more about te gearing of this car. I think using 4th gear when i have to drive 50 mph is more efficient that using 5th as 5th gear just wnt hold 50 mph with out have to use alot more pressure on the pedal.

I think 5th gear wont be used except for Idoling slow and for when i have to go 55 + mph possably not untill 60 mph.

Thaks for reading,

Bent right side Mirror in and did LOTS of engine off coasting. driving slow and trying my hardest to put hardly any pressure on the accelerator pedal. Tires at 60 lbs

Mostly on country back roads. Before readding this and the hypermiling tips. I was getting around 45 on these same backroads.

Slowing down and engine off pulse and glide have helped me the most so far. I honestly Love this site and my little rabbit. Tires at 60lbs

Thanks, Don
