Pulse&Glide, and aero mods, big mpg increase.

Before hypermiling and ecomodding my car, is averaged around 30 mpg.
And then gas went up to almost $4 a gallon.

I've never hit the 40mpg mark, but thanks to P&G and the few mods I have to my car(mirror deletes, lower grill block, rear wheel skirts), my fill up yesterday ended up at 44.118 mpg! It's warmer here than in most places but I'm also forced to use E10.
