Plain and Simple I'm a complete Noob!
 
So I'm a complete noob and until recently didn't care much about MPG and being that FE. But some extra cash never hurt anyone and a little better eco system didn't either so it's win, win for everyone involved.

I drive a 2004 GTO not the most eco friendly car but I didn't really buy it for that purpose I bought it for it's comfort and it's ability to do 0-60 lol. I enjoy racing at the local drag strip here.

Well I have browsed the site pretty briefly and there's tons of lingo and stuff on here and I was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of a beginners guide to learning how to do this.

Pics of my car.

Welcome To EM!!! There's a beginners guide somewhere in a sticky, I don't have one on hand.. But I can go and pull it up for ya. Anyone can get better FE, Even if they use their vehicle for recreation. But yea, just have a good look around. There's a lot to be had here. Nice ride btw :thumbup: Black is the way to go!

Welcome to EM...

We're being overrun with Goats! We need a shepherd...

I think there's at least 3 or 4 now. Have a competition to see which GTO take the best Fuel Economy.

Enjoy the site, and best FE to ya :thumbup:

Thanks guys I appreciate the warm welcome and the compliments on the car. I saw a fellow GTO owner on the GTO forums had your Eco thing in his avatar on their and figured I'd give this a look see and figured it was something I'd like to give a shot. I love learning new things

Welcome to the site! Got any fuel economy goals?

Nice wheels, RR. The only thing that would look better is to add a Scanguage, and ME behind the wheel!


Well, at least get a Scanguage. :)

Welcome. Check your PM. I really like the looks of that ride. However, I've been getting the jump on Goats since the late 60's. Wanna Race 1320' for pinks?

Yeah my current goal is to try for 18 MPG in the hopes of someday reaching 20 MPG. It's very hard to be gentle with a throttle that begs to be wide open.
