still damn impressive. this time I had about 3/8 tank left. I'm going to push for 500 miles out of the next one...

This tank was 4 days to work and back ONLY!! 550 miles on a tank should get me a whole week on a tank!!!!!!!!

Hand throttle goes in this weekend - should help a bunch with steady-state cruising (that's most of my drive to work)

I used this run to "dial in" my guino. I knew it would be a best-ever tank, simply because I had never driven around and pushed the gas pedal so lightly.

new microsec/gal:0262922450

This proves to me more than ever the importance of throttle control, and the fact that the oem cruise control hurts my mpg's in most cases (all that include aero / hills).

looks like the next mod will have to be the hand throttle - I like donkeycrx's setup, but I also like the simplicity of hillbilly's.... decisions decisions.

guino calibrated - very happy with it so far!!!!

normal cruizin to work and back with eoc at my favorite spots! kinda jaded it's not 50 mpg, but damn impressive none the less. used to take lots of work to hit 32 mpg's..

I'll be installing my guino this weekend. we'll see how I can improve with some instrumentation

I tried to hit 50 twice - this was the trip from home into chicago and included a little city driving (aggravated).

next tank will be drive home (about the same 108 miles) and some city driving as well. driving in chicago is fun and maddening at the same time! I do miss it, but it's bad for my mpg's

ANOTHER PERSONAL BEST!! Thank you EOC!!!

I was pretty well behaved on this tank, only got on it a little once or twice

that means I can do better. gotta do this before the winter hits. slowed down to about 64 mph on the highway (100 mile round trip commute)

looks like a new personal best! the minion has been lowered and aligned to "0" and I added a lawn edging airdam!

did cruise to chicago and drive in the city (about 250 miles of this tank had the family in the car, and junk in the trunk)

still damn good!!!

also slowed down to 65mph on the highway ( most of the time )

great runs to work and back - basically all highway miles (85% at least).

at the second half of the tank, I said what the hell and startend cruising faster than my usual 70mph and found out that i can lean burn at 80mph!!! (that's about 3200rpm's at 80), so my mileage did drop a little, but still damn impressive!

I did get on it more than a few times - plenty of stop and go driving and a-hole passing maneuvers!!

-----------------------------------------------------------
EDIT:
( I won't be using the high octane gas again. worse mileage, and my minion was real picky about going into lean burn - more than usual. came out to 38mpg. big drop from the last 2 tanks. { I won't log that tank } Next tank will be 87 octane again) I was very well behaved the whole tank, we'll see on the next one, I will report again.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Not quite as good a mileage as last time, but this is just as I expected. I got on it hard quite a few times to show off, make noise, and burn tires.

STILL BETTER THAN IT EVER WAS WITHOUT LEAN BURN!!!
