Hello everybody!

I drive a gas sucking 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX with 3.8L v6. I recently purchased a Scangauge II to help me get better mileage and while researching it I found this site. I look forward to implementing the various mods and techniques I've read about on this site to help improve my mileage.

Welcome to the site. What kind of mileage you getting now and what's your commute like?

Thankfully my commute right now doesn't exist since I don't have a job at the moment. But once I get a job it would probably be about 30 miles one way with a few hills and some flat areas.
My mpg is around what the EPA values showed: 17 city, 23-24 highway. I really hope that with the help of the Scangauge and the info from this site, I can increase those numbers some.
I have started shifting into neutral at stoplights since my Scangauge showed it reduces my gallons per hour a little bit.
