new guy intro

Hey all I have been lurking here for a while and decided to join. I have be obsessed with getting the best mpg out of my current car- a 2004 Saab 9-5 2.3T the epa combined is 21 and I normally achieve 28 to 30 on a tank. I enjoy this site and hope to meet many other with my same interest!
