Lightbulb New van getting some eco mods

Hello all, I am originally from Sydney Australia & now live on a Spanish volcanic island.

It's going to be hard to keep track of fuel logs etc because there are practically no flat roads here. You're either going up or you're going down.

Anyway, I joined because I run a delivery business (quality bike hire) and the fuel bills are getting quite substantial. I got the van in early November 2011 and today there is 28,621km (17,784 miles) on the clock!! That's quite a fuel bill every week. So I figure if I invest in some cheap DIY aero-style and efficiency style mods, I'll save money in the long run.

I'm also an environmentalist so I like to do my bit for the planet where possible, even if it entails more work.

Hills shouldn't affect your ability to keep a fuel log. It will make it hard to see gains or get decent fuel economy though.

Welcome to the forum, I read your other thread and you have already done some extensive mods. Nice.
