I'm new. Great Tips.

Hello I'm new and I'm looking forward to learning a few things on how to drive my car efficiently. I will start with more air on my tires and modify my bad driving habits. Looking into installing an MPGuino.

Welcome. Just go slower, and you'll see immediate results. My SE-R got 26 mpg @ 72 mph. I slowed it to 62 mph and raised the mpg to 33-34. 55 mph raised my mpg to 38. All trips were 800 mile round trips to SoCal with cruise control.
