I have spent only $20 up to this point on everything I have done so far. So how much gas did that buy you. I have increased mileage probably at least 10 MPG from everything I have done.
Plus read MetroMPG's testing on this subject 1.27 mpg from mirror delete. Do some research before posting please.

And where is your gas log at??

That's true. Most if not all of us Ecomodders use free stuff and do simple mods that cost little or nothing at all. That 1.27 MPG increase over 1 year adds up. Add that to all the other little improvements and some people can save over $1000.00 per year in fuel alone!

My antenna relocation mod = $0.00
Passenger mirror delete = $0.00

Larger purchases like the "Aerocap" and a Scangauge would also pay for itself in fuel savings over a period of time unless you are one of those people who get a new vehicle every couple years.

I like the looks of the new airdam!

And how is that?? Replacing with a smaller mirror. Get a life, and keep supporting the oil tycoons vacations, or terrorism at that. Oil= Iraq, Afghanistan 9/11 remember that day? So yeah a mirror is worth 1-2 MPG for me. How much is it worth to you.

Or you could go back to you quick bustangs and F.lip O.ver R.ead D.irections website.

No No and No I do Research before I do anything, Plus I am not taking mirrors off. My car came equipped on my model without a passenger mirror, look up an Xfi once. Also replacing Drivers side with smaller more aerodynamic one. I am done with you, Period.

Don't feed the trolls bbjsw...................

Safety features and other things on my car that were removed or modded.............

Passenger mirror
Daytime Running Lights
Cat converter
Jack, spare, tools
Rear seat and seatbelts

Does it look like I care about safety? I am driving a Metro for Pete's Sake!

Thanks and good seeing friendly faces, bit of a run in with trolls. Check out your car pretty nice. And must be fun to drive that lil thing in the twistys of Pennsylvania. I love it over there, my wife has family in Chicora.
