Cool thanks for the tips! 5th at 25mph!! What mpg do you get while cruising at that?

Also, I'm just going to let my signals blink fast. It's annoying, but only for a few seconds at a time.

I *think* that my UltraGauge reports something in the neighborhood of 40mpg instant at 25 in 5th... this shows as like 1000 RPM with a 195/60-15 tire... since my tires are 5% oversize (205/65) I知 actually going maybe 27mph... additionally, I値l use 4th in a school zone at like 850, but literally just barely enough throttle to maintain speed, no extra load at such a low engine speed...

And I also deal with the hyper flash since I replaced my DRL/signal bulbs with LED... no flasher delay to change out and I知 not adding a resistor to the circuit...

I've been cruising at lower speeds every since you told me about it. My next mod will be fog light/grill hole fill. Maybe with Lexan, but im not sure yet

Not than lexan wouldn't look nice, but I usually use tape of some sort for filling holes/blocking the grille... Of course the tape doesn't cost me anything, but still...
