Turtle Best Fill to date

Not earth shattering, but @ 56.53 MPG the Jr. Executive has logged its best tank yet. I thought that was pretty decent considering no EOC was used. Soley achieved by keeping him between 45 and 50 MPH the whole tank.

Very nice! I've yet to see a fill though good, so I'd say you're off to a good start.

56.5 is great! Congrats.

I read your comment in your fuel log: "painfully slow", and feel your pain. basjoos has that issue sorted out with radical aero mods (good FE @ higher speeds), which may not be for everyone.

Hope you don't mind I moved the thread into Ecodriver's Ed - since that appears to be the basis for your improvements so far.

PS - love the car's nickname. Funny.
