Hello,

I'm a new member from the cold country of Finland. I drive a 1995 Toyota Aristo, which isn't your average eco car, more like an ego car.

Just reading to find some ways to improve FE. FE isn't my biggest "goal" in the car, but because I'm financially in a bad situation at the moment, I thought why not try to make it better.

I'm glad you joined us!

#1 thought was to make yourself a front airdam, add about 7psi to your tires, slow down, and drive SMOOTHLY which is hard to change habits.

I know you'll pick up alot of info here.

Can't visualize what your car looks like; maybe you could share a picture of one soon!

Here's one.

It's basically a Lexus GS300, with a turbo engine. And it was only available in Japan.

If your finantial situation is not the best one at the moment, I should tell you to do the cheapest eco-mod: strip its interior trim down as much as you're able to do.

As a motorcycles enthusiast, I could also tell you to delete the A/C and maybe even the cab heater. The weight of a decent jacket would be still lighter than the heater core and all its piping
