Hypermiling in New Mexico.

Hello All, I've been checking out this site a bit and found the 100+ tips
very helpful. I decided to join up after I filled up the Sentra and found that this tank was worth 48.85 mpg! Im a mechanic at a speed shop and catch some flak for my fuel efficiency, but I do think it's catching on. Next goal
50 mpg.

Welcome to EM! My coworker friend has your generation Sentra. I am going to show him your car so he knows what it's capable of.

You are a little above 5,000 feet altitude. As a mechanic, do you think that you might be getting a 1 or 2 MPG "lean burn boost"?

I am a mechanic also and get lots of flak from fellow techs also. It's part of the game!

Welcome to the site.

Congrats on the great mileage

I also work @ a speed shop and the best part is having the knowledge and tools to combine the two, power and FE

its the new bandwagon

Thanks for all the warm welcomes!

To: cfg83 The high altitude lean burn boost is possable, I live at least 1000 to 1500 ft
higher than the place where I work. I can EOC for at least 11 miles out of 40 miles during my daily round trip commute. I think that is a major contributor to my MPG's.

To: Johnny Mullet I liked your build thread. Looks like you know which end of the wrench is which. These little cars are so fun to work on.

To Vince-HX Good to met you too. It's funny when our customers ask me what I drive they expect a high power car, the only guy who unserstands is a scooter owner! Good Times.
Glad to be a member!
