One milestone reached...

By at least one standard (ecomodder's), I'm officially a hypermiler!

My last tank was 36.5mpg, which brings my 90-day average to 34.9mpg, and my last three fills to 36.6mpg!

Eventually, I want to lower the car more, get smaller side mirrors, and smooth out the underside, particularly in the rear. That's probably worth a couple of mpg, really. I have been telling myself that 40mpg on a regular basis is within reach, and I actually believe it at this point.
