Ecomodding goals / resolutions for 2016?

We pretty much do this every year, but I couldn't find the link back to the 2015 thread... If someone has it please post it.

Anyway, what are your ecomodding goals for 2016?



I believe last year I kept it simple and said that I'd like to use less fuel than the year before. I'll have to look at my fuel logs to know for sure, but I think I achieved this.

For 2016, I would like to continue that same goal. I'm all over the map at this point weather the Metro is going to stay or go, and if it goes I don't know if the new car will be gas or electric. So, I'll stick with 'use less gas'.

Moving mods off the back burner. I still haven't dug into the dash to disconnect the AC coming on when defrost is selected. And I've got that lovely 3-D printed shift knob kill switch that I haven't wired in yet.

Working closer to home is a pipe dream, but it's a good one.

By the end of the year I plan to have an EV for my daily driver, probably a used Leaf.

My commute hasn't changed for years, and I don't see it changing in the near future, so I might as well go from using very little gas to using NO gas. The miles of my daily commute are perfect for a Leaf's capacity, so if I find a good deal out there I'll probably say goodbye to gas at some point this year

Gas is so cheap I'm gonna drive that F150 exclusively, everywhere, for everything or nothing, with the pedal to the floor most of the time.












Kidding!
