Oregonian trapped in Washington
Hi all. My name is Adam and I live in Mt. Vernon, WA. I'm a Portland native though and am sorta trapped up here because of my soon-to-be wife. I drive a 95 Geo Metro 2-door 5-speed hatchback. I've only had my Geo for about a month or so and every tank I'm getting better and better fuel economy. Slowly I'm working my way to a goal of atleast 60 MPG by doing various mods to my Geo. So far the only thing I've really done is some basic maintenance and added a front grille block-off. My last fill-up was 45.2 MPG, which was 1.8 MPG better than my last fill-up. I drive about 400 miles a week, so it all adds up really fast when you consider my Geo replaced a 20 MPG Subaru. Anyways, that's me. I'll post up pictures tonight when I get home from work.

One last thing, how do I enter my MPG stats in the garage? I've added my Geo but I can't seem to figure out how to input my mileage and FE.

That sounds like a very pleasant trap to be stuck in.

I believe you go here. Which should be what happens when you go to the Garage, then click "add another fuel log entry for my vehicle". Enter a number of miles, and a number of gallons, and the fill-up date.

Yeah, it's not too bad. I see what I was doing wrong. It works now. Thank you. Any other fellow ecomodders in my neck of the woods?

Hey Adam, I used to live in Bellingham, and then out in Everson. But I gotta tell you, IMHO, trapped is more like moving from your area to Florida. That's what I did, and like you, it had to do with a woman! :o

Congrats on your mileage ambitions! Sounds pretty sweet to me (driving 9 MPG 8L V10 truck at the moment).

Well my last fill-up I got 49.8 MPG. This next tank should be close to 50 again (there was some rough driving on this tank).
