Hey Everyone

Hey everyone my name is Zach, currently I'm a senior in High school but I'm planning on going to a local tech school for Energy Technology next year. I've been interested in fuel efficiency for about a year now but haven't had the time to start any projects due to having school during the week and working directly after. But now as summer is coming up in a couple of weeks, I should have more time to get some projects started. Currently I drive an 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix SE averaging about 17 mpg in town... but I'm trying to change my lead foot ways. Also I own a 2000 Suzuki GSXR 600 Sport bike which is probably getting around 40 mpg. but I'm planning on selling them both for a more fuel efficient car. I came to this site to learn more about fuel efficiency mods and driving techniques.

Welcome to ecomodder! That's a sweet bike, why not trade down for a ninja 250, they get great mileage, I hear?

I would love to keep my bike but living in a small town in South Dakota it doesn't seem very practical to me and with having a long winter this year and being busy all the time I haven't got much use out of it. And usually I'm the driver when hanging out with friends, a motorcycle just doesn't have enough capacity for me. But some day when I move to someplace warmer I'll be sure to get another bike.

There's a show on Cartoon Network that created the character :

Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! TEASER


Tim and Eric - Where's my chippy 2


Totally insane stuff. Not for the faint of humor,
