Looks good Bruce... one question. I thought I read somewhere that you had made this adjustable. I would like to do the same. Is the lower adjustable or are you planning on the upper being adjustable?

Were new pictures posted somewhere that I am missing?

Just had another 60 MPG tank!!! I am loving the car being lowered. It handles much better and coasts better. I think the MMO got a little "tired" (as Bruce calls it when it gets a week or more old.) My trip home from work today, the car tried to go into low RPM lean burn and could not stay in like it normally does. I was hopping it was cured of its issues, but Bruce's prophecy of this happening came true... Looks like I am still addicted to fresh MMO.

I will try to get pictures of the car tomorrow. Setting the camera out so I remember!

I started my grill block thread here back in the summer. Haven't yet posted pics of the recent work but I hope to get them up soon.

Good news: multiple teams, please test. Bad news...

The good news:

Since this is the most active team, I'm posting here:

The ability to join multiple teams is now live. Please have a look & try it out (even if just to test it to see that it works).

Let me know if you spot any bugs.

The bad news:

The U.F.O. has fallen off the "90-days-since-last-fillup cliff"! So it's no longer contributing to this team's score. But I will be filling up again in the next couple of days.

I just joined boat tails and more team (what I think of as the "heavy modded" team), and I am still shown on the honda list. Works! But I do not see both team names on my profile beside my postings.

My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

Thanks - oversight! I'll look at that bit tomorrow.

Weather's been really crappy around here with fall in full swing. Very strong winds on highway have been biting into economy. My goal was 50 mpg and I managed to eek out 51.75 this tank. Wasn't sure on the way home from work as the winds were right in my face at 30 gusting to 50km/hr.

Liking the grille cover, haven't found time to paint it black yet. Maybe tonight as there's a major snowfall warning issued. I don't want to be messing around with the car after that. Expecting 15cm (6") to 25cm (10") by Saturday. Snow tires are on!

Yes, tough going in my area too. We had a hurricane, and a Nor'easter snowstorm followed ten days later. My most recent fill was just under 48.5 mpg. In warm fall weather I was getting about 54 mpg; that's a big reduction.

I have hopes that in "clean" winter weather - without rain or snow - I can still get 50ish mpg. Maybe even mid-50's if I can install the engine heater successfully; I just ordered it tonight.
