Long Time Lurker, Second Time Poster

Hi all!

I've been lurking in the forums for a couple of years now and just wanted to introduce myself and my car.

I own a 1995 Honda Civic CX with no mods... yet. I plan to start working on the car to get rid of some inefficiencies and fixing broken stuff that come with old age. After the February elections here in the Chicago area, I'll be performing my first ecomod due to the abundance of coroplast.

As for me, I've been driving more effectively and logging my mileage in a spreadsheet. I don't P&G in traffic, I anticipate stoplights, turn the engine off at train crossings and known long read lights and coast to a stop whenever possible (I rarely EOC). I've been getting around 40MPG in local suburban traffic.

Congrats on de-lurking. (Can tell you've been reading if you know about the election sign trick!)

40 is decent in sub/urban. Looking forward to reading about your projects.
