4th of July Sienna grill block

Drove to Fla and only got 22 mpg in this van. Yes we drove fast and the van had 4 adults and extra junk in it. I taped over the grill to make it more aerodynamic on the return trip. Got 26 at the 1st fill up. had 3 adults and less junk in car. Van did not overheat at all. SC

EPA 17/19/23

37% over EPA combined. Nice. Are you ready to make a boat tail and get 30 mpg?
