Frontal area: 22.97 sq.ft.
Description: Silver, 5% tint on all but windshield, all LED lighting except for switched DRLs & headlights, folding mirrors on both sides. Driving from North Carolina all the way to the west coast proved 31mpg average on the built-in gauge.

I've found no reason to fill the tank while in the city. One quarter tank is enough weight to carry around.

Electric radiator fan installation.
Thinner tires & lighter rims.
Grille blocking.
Seams sealed (lights, hood, doors).
Switchable alternator.
Moon hubcaps.
Wheel skirts.
Vehicle height ↑ adjustment (yes, higher).
Complete undercarriage covering (belly pan, etc.).
Thinner multi-weight synthetic motor oil.

Possible HHO or CNG injection.
Possible fuel intake modifications (heated fuel vapor).
Possible methanol injection.
Possible ethanol (E85+) as fuel testing.
