Goal reached

Homeworkhome 53 refers to my goal of driving to work and returning on one gallon of gas. I rounded it up to 53 the distance is actually 52.4 miles, this week's tank was 52.79mpg average. I would give all the credit to areo mods after spending about 7 weeks stuck between 48 and 50. This past week's tank was the first one with fender skirts, grill block and rear and passenger wipper removed. I've got 4 days off and will be working on a partial body pan and flat wheel covers and maybe glass my fender skirts. A new goal should be 55 mpg. If I can do that a couple weeks in a row I'll tag the rear driver side window with a "55 MPG"

Nice! Impressive trend on your fuel graph. Looks like the skirts helped put you over the top.
