It's an interesting site, all right, a very different kind of fun than most car sites. Don't worry about not driving anything eco, most people don't. Most of this site is about getting the most out of what you've got.

Even what sounds like a pathetic improvement on a guzzler is actually a huge percentage gain. I was really upset my the numbers I got in my wife's old Xterra, but in the summer I was getting almost 40% over EPA. I was glad to get out of it, but I'm proud of the numbers I managed to get in it.

Welcome aboard!

Which vehicle is the daily driver?

A lower front air dam would be a good start, lawn edging is what most of us use!!

I live near small towns so I have the luxury of acting like an Ole Farmer and driving 45MPH max on a two-lane highway rated at 55MPH
