New Beginnings

Hello Everyone, My name is Simon and I just purchased a 1996 5 speed Aspire for $500.00 and she runs great. I found this site last night and hope to learn more in improving my mpg. I also own a 1999 Toyota 4runner, which is a 4 cylinder and a truck 8cylinder-which I will be selling soon. I have read some of the posted threads and hope to read more. Thank You for your time.

Welcome Simon! Aspires are hard to find. There are only 3 for sale within 500 miles of my home, according to cars.com. Great mileage. I'm envious.

Welcome. The really good news is that you should be able to run a ScanGauge in your '96 Aspire. Instant/average feedback is key in adjusting your driving and/or evaluating mods to your vehicle.

I really enjoy driving my aspire, everything works even the ac. I need to get some tint put on and come up with a paint scheme for her. I will be taking some before pictures before I get started.
