Hello from Landenberg, PA

Hello,
Just signed on to ecomodder. Really like the site so far. I have been ecomodding / just modding my vehicles for as long as I have been driving. It all goes along with my general philosophy of less is more...especially with todays high gas prices.

I have a motorcycle which I occasionally ride, but normally I'm going down the road in my Ranger pickup truck, which is slowly getting modded for better fuel economy...it's currently doing 22 mpg city, which is a lot better than the 16 or so the EPA rates it at.

It's featured in this months issue of greenermachine.com, a free website I just contributed to...

Since I wrote the bit, I've added an airdam on the front, and I'm currently working on an aerodynamic shell for the back...more pics soon.

Glad to meet you all,

Rich McCann

I just read the piece you contributed. Good stuff. I hope you'll post progress of your mods as you do them. (I see in another thread you're planning an aeroshell.)

Welcome to the site.
