My new skirts gained me 2.3 MPG!
 
I finally got through a tank of gas today and after filling up, I went from 30.8 to 32.1 MPG! I will now hack off the back wind - catching bumper and start coming up with something more aero on the front....:)

Now you just need to get some sort of mileage computer to do some more reliable ABA testing, :)

I plan to get a scanguage, and I've also decided that my rear bumper is nothing more than a large, cupped hand and 30 pounds back there...... hoping to replace with a lightweight tube, or nothing, if it's not illegal in my state

The scangauge won't work on pre-1996 cars, :( .

CRAP! I forgot. The Yota is the oldest of my bunch. Do they have cheap readers for older ones?

You live in Indiana man! I lived in Huntington, IN for 5 years and all you need is four wheels (sometimes) and a steering wheel :thumbup:

Not knowing the laws in your state, if you want a little protection then box off your frame from underneath and in front of the roll pan under your tailgate. You may not save weight, but it will help protect your rear plus give a good end point if you decide to pan the undersideof the truck.

I haven't seen any. I am guessing that you will want to read this because it is designed to be inexpensive and pre-OBDII friendly :

This assumes you have fuel injection, but 1992 makes me think your truck must be.
