Hello everyone, I finally have started to use my gas saver and test economy with it, so I'll be posting from now on.
I'm logging everything on a blog, and I'll keep up with mods and results of tests on the forums here too. Everyone else's work here inspires me, and I hope to produce some helpful information to others in the future!
Matt

Welcome. I checked your blog and see you're a high school physics teacher. That's fantastic. Will you be sharing your collected wisdom with your students?

Happy to see another EM member who appreciates good data & proper experimentation.

Most definitely; I'm really into cars (I also have a mustang) and I already share much of my automotive knowledge with my students!

Glad to be here! I specifically recall seeing your experimentation with the kammback on your car a year or two ago, and you mentioning how your neighbors were on-looking at your cardboarded car with curiosity. Two questions: Was that on this site? (did it exist then?) and I also seem to think you mentioned a specific angle you didn't want it to slope greater than; something like 12 degrees.... Do I remember any of this correctly?

You remember correctly. You saw this page: Kardboard Kammback: testing a partial boat tail prototype

This site (EcoModder) didn't exist until December '07.

Welcome to EM! I love the buttons and switches you have installed. I admire clean/stealthy mods.
