Turtle New to here!

Hey, all! I'm new over here, and fairly new to the ecomodding world. I'm a penniless grad student in Columbia, SC with a 1999 Buick LeSabre sporting a ScanGauge II (Thanks, grandparents!), upper grille block, and smooth wheel covers.

Looking forward to learning more about getting better MPG's from my car (last tank was 31 mpg, 80/20 highway/city)!

I'm surprised the Buick didn't come with an onboard MPG gauge. No matter, the SG is more useful.

Welcome to the site.

Thanks, people!

It's the base-model Buick. No bells or whistles you couldn't find on a modern economy car. No, the faux-wood trim and cushy seats you wouldn't.
