Hello from Poland

Hi, my name is Piotr or Peter if you like and i read about this forum today on gizmodo. Im very happy that such forum exist

My cars are Citroen Berlingo 1.9D which is very economical small Van, about 53 mpg without any improvements in aerodynamics. Other car is Opel Vectra 1.8 16V LS at the moment best performance is 39 mpg without aerodynamics improvements too.

What i want to achieve ? With cars i already own nothing more. I want to change those to Audi A2 3L or VW Lupo 3L and after some time make one of those EV.

Im big hydrogen cars sceptic and i love idea of electric car. What im serching on this forum ? I want to learn more about car aerodynamics than i already know and meet some people who like idea of electric cars and ecodriving.

Hi Piotr - welcome to the forum.

I'm sure I'd be lusting after an A2 (Cd 0.25) or Lupo 3L if I had that option.

You may be interested in this YouTube series following the electric conversion of an A2:

Hello PiotrW it seems that there are a number of us (Polish EconoModers) interested in wringing out the most efficiency from our cars. Good luck in your efforts.
