new member in a mazda 6
hello people I'm new to this interesting site I'm going to be doing most of my logs manually for awhile cause i don't have $140 to spare for a ScanGaugeII.

anyway I'm driving a 2004 Mazda 6 (S trim) without any mods yet. but i did just purchase a k&n typhoon intake to replace the OEM one that I managed to tear a hole in through silicone hose of.

anyway I'm good for recommendations for the next mod and i will try to get the money for a ScanGaugeII, but no promises.

Welcome to the site.

I'd say forget the intake. Nobody has ever tested a cold air "performance" intake here and shown it has any benefits to mileage. It might give you a tiny bit more horsepower is all.

I suggest starting with the 100+ hypermiling tips list (up top) and the 65+ mods list. These are proven ways to increase your mileage.

Welcome !

Look over those lists above, then look at our wiki car mood page.
Mods at the top of any list:
Scan gauge ($150, check ebay) or ultra gauge (75$)
Grill block
Smoothe wheel covers

Is it a manual transmission? If so a kill switch can help you coast while using no gas at all.

Welcome! You don't have to go big money to get results here!

The BIGGEST mod you will ever make will be your mind in discipline in how YOU drive!

We like to call that adjusting the nut behind the wheel!

Plenty of info here. Just soak it all in!

Loose the trunk wing, wind deflector -if you have one, and unscrew the roof mount antenna for starters.
