been MIA recently. Life has me by the balls. A lot of things going on professionally that have put some aero mods to the sidelines. Hoping to have some progress soon.

As far as P&G with my clutch, I've now got the chance to run 3 tanks. Basically my pre-P&G tanks I'd get a consistent 360 miles per tank. Now I'm averaging 380. Or an increase of about 3 to 5% in my MPG. Basically every 12 full ups, I'm getting the 13th free via my fuel savings. Not great, but not bad either for only slightly modifying my driving habits.

Wheels

You might see if you can find a set of stock wheels for a Mini Cooper (first gen) they're alloy and 15 or 16 inch depending on the wheel you get, and they're pretty light, popular in the tuner crowd. I had a set on my wife's old Corolla, saw a slight mpg increase using them vs the stock steels and hubcaps, you can usually get a set for $100 or so, call around tire shops, most will have at least one set in stock.

thanks for the tip. I'm running an after market wheel, bought pre any attempt to ecomod. Been looking at some other options so thanks for the mini coop tip. Hoping to go tall and thin, similar, yet drastically smaller, to a BMW I3. Saw one on the highway, never seen a wheel/tire set up like that before.

For the most part, same tire narrower = greater rolling resistance. Go wide for summer, stock or slightly narrower for winter if in the snow belt IMO. Tire choice is more important than size.

Have a pair of Nokian Entyres in the mail to give them a try before winter, doubt I will see a MPG change but want to give them a try anyway.
