Finally achieved my Goal, 100% over EPA :)
With this last fill, I finally achieved the goal I've had for the last two and half years...a 50mpg 90 day average of commuting. This isn't a one fill high mpg number (like some on the top ten list), this is a real commute into and out of Philly each day. No pure highway tanks or short fills to bump up the number either :) I'm very excited about the recent results, but don't think I can push it much higher than where it is now without some more serious mods.

It's also an automatic transmission, so EOC or P&G :D

Great job!

Wow! Strong work. 2x the EPA rating and with an automatic tranny. That's impressive.

Agreed, 100% above EPA with a slushbox is quite the task! Congrats.

I think the term Master Ecomodder is appropriate, especially with the route you must take.

Tygen1 -

I *really* respect your accomplishment because I also judge myself on the 90 day scale.

Is there one thing that put you "over the top", so to speak?


Tygen1 07-07-2011 06:07 PM

Warm weather put me over the top :) I've had the current mods since winter time. But in the winter I put on some light weight wheels, RE-92 Tires, Zero Alignment, and Deleted the P/S and A/C, so that is what has brought me from one 50mpg Commute to several.
Of note is that my most recent tank is better than my best pure highway tank :)
