Don't post much but enjoy MPG bennies

So I keep doing mild mods to my 2000 Toyota Echo and keep setting records per tank….first got to 40.21 mpg, then 41.64, and now 40.023! You guys are right, all the little things add up! It is not just one mod that makes a huge difference but a bunch of small steps….Still living in the land of Texas where huge trucks are the norm (gonna hurt some sensitive fellas feelings again…sorry). Keep rocking on and saving those gallons my dudes….Slim

is that "40.023" a typo? judging by the writing style i expected a larger number.

Grats though, i've never broken 40

Glad you're having fun & seeing gains.

OK, I'm done!

I went looking for a picture of a VW Rabbit with ears on it for NachtRitter, and somehow wound up at a picture of "Sexy Amputees," so I guess I'll focus on work for a while...
