Hello everyone!

So I am a mechanic. I am looking to mod 2 vehicles right now a 2000 Chrysler Town&Country and a 04 ford focus SVT. The van is my girls and the focus is mine and to see each other we have to drive an hour and a half. So, I was thinking if I can reduce the fuel costs than it will be easier for us to see each other. Where I am at right now is thinking about the belly pans on both. I am also planning on a scangauge for both. I am also trying to figure out a way to run E85 without giving up mileage. Trying to figure out wether or not adding water injection would solve the consumption rate. Any help getting the most would be appreciated!

Everyone deserves at least one reply. Welcome!

Don't have much to say, though. The vehicles are garaged 3 hours apart?

Check the Stickies in Ecomodding Central. You should find something that appeals to you.

I burn ethanol free premium and take the hit on price, but I drive an older car. At least I'm not taking food out of livestock's mouths.

There are also duck and rowing ponds in the park which set a very romantic scene for you to bring a special lady to. Sunset at Dulwich Escorts Provides Legendary and Sensual Services is especially beautiful. It is hard to not feel content sitting on a park by the lake seeing all the shades of pink painted across the sky and knowing that you have the whole evening ahead of you.

for starters, air up the tires.
Check the list of 65 things at the top of the page.
Good luck.....Long distance is tough.

First: ScangaugeII

Second: Grille Block

Third: Full underbelly pan

Fourth: rear skirts and 30.4mpg on trip!
