Owner: Karadjas
The Silver Miser: 1997 Seat Ibiza Van TDi SXE
Displacement: 1.9 L
Fuel type: diesel
Transmission: manual
Curb weight: 2200 lbs
Coefficient of drag: 0
Frontal area: 0 sq.ft.
Description: Only minor hypermiling (Occassional P&G on highway, engine-on coasting while trying to not upset any fast and/or furious drivers following me, upshifts at 1500rpm)

Fixed leaky fuel pump

Needs rear wheel bearings.

Never gets even close to middle on the temp gauge. Possibly the thermostat stuck open? Possible gains?

Always refill at first fuel station after fuel light comes on, always takes 29.8-30.0L until full. I do not fill the expansion tank.
Build Thread:
Current Mods: Lighter wheels, high tyre pressure

Not Eco, performed by previous owner:
Higher boost, higher fuel supply when on boost (hence upshifts at 1500rpm, to avoid boost), Big exhaust. I don't know the new boost/fuel figures, but it's much livelier and faster than stock GT TDis.

Planned Mods: GT TDi "mini-Kammback" spoiler, perhaps lowering, further adjustment of nut behind wheel without going to extremes.
