Hi All! Ater a whole lot of messin' up I finally got logged in --after lurking for a few months. My fleet consists of an '06 Dakota quad cab, a '96 miata, and the wife's '08 ultima coupe. My Dakota is up to 21 mpg city, the miata is about 32 combined(but I've only had it a couple of months. The garage also has 4 bikes--three of which are mine. The bikes get a combined 8,000 to 10,000 miles per year on powerebars and gatorade.

I've been lurking around a lot of similar sites and you guys seem to be the friendliest and most down to earth. I've gotten alot of ideas here and have a lot of plans for additional mods, especially to the Dakota. With any luck I'll get to meet some of you in September.

Hey Ed, thanks for the kind words. Be sure to set up fuel logs for all your vehicles so we can track your progress!

The logs aren't too bad but are tedious once you get going. You weren't kidding when you said you had a "fleet"... though with that kind of mileage on those bikes, when do you have time to drive?


My 5 pillars of fuel efficiency:
  • driving style
  • aerodynamics
  • tires
  • weight reduction
  • engine maintenance
