For me currently its more about testing the mods than actually getting the best possible milage. Using the cruise control is counter-productive to getting the best milage but it is much more consistant than any human so i am using it. I need to get a couple more base-line tanks in before i start with taping or increasing tire pressure. I want to have a solid plot of data

Except your baseline is only going to be accurate if the weather stays the same. Outside temperature is a huge factor, and the longer you go past your baseline, the deeper into summer you get. Turning a page on the calendar is an ecomod this time of year.
