Thanks, basjoos!

It's fun to compare the lean burn AeroCivic vs. the lean burn 1st generation Insight (without the boattail, but with several other mods like partial grille block, pass. mirror delete, rear wiper delete, etc.):



From: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...nda-23230.html

At the higher speeds, it's no surprise the AeroCivic does better.

I was beginning to give up on ecomodding because I thought 52 MPG at 60 MPH was really bad but seeing these charts make me realize it is pretty good.

I tried to get some of this data last night but aborted when the data became anomalous. I would expect one direction to be better than the other, and this was the case for the first couple of runs. Then the numbers flipped, and in a big way. I don't have cruise control, so seeing the writing on the wall, I aborted.

Did I miss an HX chart? Do you guys need me to do that? Purchase and install an MPGuino and then what?

I actually have police paperwork showing that I drove 40-45 in a 65, although I was driving very carefully, maintaining a much faster speed, although still the only driver not speeding.

Yes. It is amazing how carefully you drive when the police are following you. I was definitely going faster than they claimed.

So they exaggerated?

CleanMPG drove a two-wheel drive model from California to Georgia with a conservative 3.15 rear axle for maximum fuel economy. That doesn't mean they didn't use the truck like it was meant to be used. There were five adults in the pickup for most of the journey plus a cargo box full of camping gear and supplies that pushed the F-150's gross vehicle weight to 7,120 pounds -- 20 pounds over its 7,100-pound GVWR.

Here's a look at CleanMPG's observed Interstate highway steady state fuel economy at different speeds:

70-mph - 22.3 mpg (6th gear with transmission's torque converter locked)
60-mph - 25.5 mpg (6th gear with transmission's torque converter locked)
50-mph - 31.6 mpg (6th gear with transmission's torque converter locked)
45-mph - 33.9 mpg (6th gear with transmission's torque converter locked)
40-mph - 32.6 mpg (6th gear with transmission's torque converter locked)

Incidentally this is so close to the fuel consumption of my 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport (3.3L V6) that's it's kind of frightening. I drove over 200km last weekend and the trip computer said I got 29.3mpg no mods, still have a roof rack, and 316 000km on the odometer… Can't believe it's still running.
