88mpg, '94 Geo Metro 3-5 some experience!
hey all, my daily driver, a '94 geo metro 3-5 gets 47 city, and 88hwy. I've just finally sold my white geo a '93 , 3-5, and with one more "Gadget" on it, I had it getting 56 city, and 72 hwy. I'm sure if I'd been able to do another "Test" it would've got 78, maybe 80 on the freeway!

i have a few "gadgets" of my own!

I too have some "gadgets"!

True, they consist mostly of a bunch of roof flashing and a rear wing from a Subaru, but unlike numb nut's* above's "gadgets", mine actually exist, are installed on a current vehicle I drive daily, and are documented on here for everybody to admire and share should they want to!

*to be clear "numb nuts" = Gaud29, not the rest of you guys

Okay, Gaud, I'll bite.

What gadget?

I'm not saying you didn't achieve 88mpg. But you'll have to admit that with just a little bit of perusal on the Garage listings, even middle 70s mpg isn't a common occurrence and the majority of participants here are a lot more forthcoming with what they've done to achieve the mileage they post.

So dish. Tell us.

Ah... is this just another person trying to impress us? I'm flattered.

To clear the air a little, gaud29 contacted me via e-mail yesterday needing a bit of assistance on how to use the forum. (This isn't completely unusual: we have a few other members who have posted some really good stuff, but needed help getting started.)

I asked about the 88 mpg fill-up, and he was forthcoming about his test route, driving technique & fill method. The fill-up is a bit of a red flag: it's a very small amount. I mentioned this would generate skepticism, but he defended his method. (I'll let him speak for himself.)

As for the mods, we didn't talk about those, but I'm willing to wait & hear him out.

He's got my attention, anyway!
