Hello From Maine

Hey, Name is Chris and I'm From Bangor Maine. I stumbled upon this site while out with a knee injury and it inspired me to eco up my car. Right now I'm patiently waiting for my new scan gauge 2. I also removed my aftermarket 16 inch wheels with 205 50 16 tires and put on my 15 inch steel stock wheels with 185 65 15 tire. along with my slower driving style I have gone from a 31- 33 mpg to a 36 and improving mpg. I used to be all about performance and fun to drive factor. Now I find it amusing to get great gas milage.

Hey Chris:

OK you've got me. How does a knee injury lead to ecomodding?
