Good job! I just looked at your fuel log and your making great progress. When summer temps and gas get here, you'll do much better

Can't wait. I know the warm temps help but what is the difference in the summer and winter gas.

Summer vs. Winter Gas is a debatable issue. Although I typically see a 2-3mpg drop when the winter gas hits, at leaast I think I do , then I start to try harder and gain back some of the loss.

I noticed you have no way of removing the rear wheel skirts for easy access to your wheels. Might I recommend installing a hinge at the top and 2 of these latches at the bottom so that all you have to do is slide the latch over on 2 latches (one at the front, one at the rear of the base plate) and flip up the skirt? This is what I will be doing shortly on my Geo.

I keep a phillps screwdriver and 10mm wrenches in the glove box. Only takes a couple minutes to remove them
