Red face Newbie from SouthWest Florida

I'm Manny and live in Lehigh Acres, FL(Ft Myers area). I have a 2005 Scion xB. So aerodynamics are out but I'll use any and all tips on hypermiling and etc. The first thing I need to do is slow down. I do about 80mph everyday to and from work on the highway(trip is 97% highway). The xB has a 4speed auto. I'm still getting about 30 mpg. Not to bad I think.

Welcome to the site MannyV.

Aero is never out! You can still get gains by doing a grill block. Slowing down is also a great start as is airing up your tires to max sidewall pressure.

Current project: A better alternator delete
