Finally decided to get an Ecomodder profile

Hi everybody,

I'm new to Ecomodder and have only been hypermiling since this past August when I obtained my Scanguage. I learned so much about hypermiling from this forum, Metrompg and various other websites. I used to get around 23 mpg on my drive to school until I started hypermiling. I will save enough gas this year to drive to school for almost another semester if I wanted to, but I intend to transfer before then.
Anyways, I have been morphing my daily hypermiling into a school project that will help me look good on my transcript and better yet satisfy my curiosity. I have done a lot of testing for the project on my car, and I can't wait to do some more. In the near future I will post my results for many tests to add to the wealth of information on this forum, so look around.
To end on a cliffhanger, I recently put a grill block on my car and will soon post pictures in another thread.

Bye for now

Edit: Here is my test of Speed vs. Fuel Economy, and here is my new upper grill block.

At my school we can make any class into an honors class if we do an outside project. My outside project includes the experiments I'm going to do on my car.
