Build Thread:
Current Mods: I keep the vehicle well maintained mechanically. Lots of pulse & glide

Planned Mods: MPGuino. An aerocap if I can find or build one that is cost effective. Remove AC compressor, condenser and accumulator. Add full complement of skid plates to smooth under vehicle airflow. Possible partial grill block- need to see cooling efficiency after removing AC condenser.
