Welcome to the site.

I read in your other thread that you're getting around 27 mpg. I'd highly recommend looking at the 100+ hypermiling tips link up top. I think you should be able to get into the 30s without any mods.

Thanks for the tip. I read through them a while ago and there some things on the list I can't avoid.
1) weight.. Have stereo and sound deadened from windows down.
2) this is my daily driver so some of the items are hard to avoid like traffic. I try to if possible like on weekends.
Just to name a couple, to be honest 27 is a much improvement for me I used to get 20-23. I adjusted my habits and still trying to fine tune them.
My goal is to get to 33mpg so I'm working on it:-). My girlfriend thinks I drive to slow as I do now lol

I also think it may because I have no engine covers. Or wheel well covers... Short Story is being low can cause a snowball effect
