Smile New here

So, uhm, hi. I'm just another green hick from the backwoods of the south. Anyways I've been lookin into modding my car for more efficeny. I hyper miled it up to 40 mpg, but because I'm no longer about to drive the same routes that I used to, its only been up to 35 mpg. Lol, I know 5 mpg reduction.

OK so maybe the last route was an extremely steep hill both ways, and I would kill it at the top and coast all the way down nearly a mile.

My current ride is a simple 2003 Chevy Cavalier 4 door automatic 2.2 L

Welcome to the site from another redneck down in Louisiana!

I would drive the 40Mpg route, even if it was longer.
