65 MPH fuel economy--54.32 MPG

First gas log entry on my VX, all Interstate at 65 MPH average. Best weather this year with temps in the 35-55 degree range.

Mods are 44 PSI, 35% radiator block, and simple WAI off the cat.

No hypermiling just moving slightly slower than the average speed of traffic. No real drafting since the severe winter weather here has generated a lot of nasty potholes. I probably passed 5 cars in close to 300 miles. Many conga lines of morons with 2 car length separation.

regards
Mech
