4mpg improvement with Areo Mods!

40mpg!!!! I almost drove 500 miles on last tank. I could have if I used the same amount as last fill up. Last fill up was 440 miles using 12.4 gallons of gas and this tank of gas was 478 miles using 11.7 gallons of gas! I drove with Passenger Side Mirror Deleted, Lower Grill Block, and Smooth Wheel Covers. The bulk of my miles were highway. Got to take 10x30mile highway trips in addition to my usually driving to work this is on street roads. I did delete my driver’s side mirror in the last 80 miles. I used 93 octane from Shell.

I think you got a little too exited when entering your tank.

I have my tires at 40 PSI (they were orginally at 30 PSI), but I plan on getting it up to 50 PSI.

Yes, I was. I added the current fuel milage of my car. Plus the page time out each time I entered the data on the fuel log. So I though each atempt failed while I was adding additional fuel longs by unkowingly. I deleted all the eroneous fuel logs.
