New from NW Florida

Hello all, just joined and wanted to introduce myself. I live up in NW Florida and enjoy keeping track of car numbers I have included some photos of the vehicles in the stable (my magnum, wife's flex, and garage queen Typhoon). Looking forward to reading through the forums and maybe getting to know some new people.

Jason

Welcome to the site Jason. What kind of mileage are you getting with the Magnum?

It gets me roughly 22 mpg with mostly highway but also a lot of spirited driving. The wife's Flex has the same size motor, the car is larger, heavier and boxier and she still averages 23.5 so far (got the Flex last year)

Thank you, it was one of my "dream cars" growing up. The first time that both my wife and I had jobs she "let" me get the Typhoon .

A belated welcome. Did you black out the Magnum's grille area, or is that factory?

Biggest improvement comes from getting instant/trip MPG feedback & adjusting the nut behind the wheel.
