Description: I'm pretty bad about quantifying gains, and I don't have a MPG-sympathetic route to work any longer; it's all City. My mods are small, and taken singularly, probably insignificant. However, I'm taking a pretty conservative route (conservative inasmuch as my mods should produce results and not the opposite) and hoping that taken together, they'll produce a "death by 1000 cuts" affect.
