Hi guys,

I have been lurking around here off and on, a lot of good info here. Decided I would pop in and say Hi. I have some big plans for mods to my car, mainly engine mods, and I want to log my work with photos and explanations for anyone interested.

I really learned a lot reading the hypermiling pin, and am starting to implement that driving style as much as I can. I generally get a little over 300miles to a tank of gas, and right now i have 270 miles on this tank of gas and the gas gauge is just under 1/2 so i am pretty stoked to see what it calculates out to.

Looking to learn lots more from everyone here.
