Yanlapanic, why don't you go ahead and start a new thread in the forum with some pictures of your car if you have some. We would be more then happy to give you some suggestions there. It's ok we don't bite.

FastPlastic was suggesting that you start your own thread for two reasons:

1. So you can get answers that are more devoted to what you're asking;
2. So you're not taking attention away from the person who had originally posted this thread.

Even if you don't do the mods that are suggested, you might get a few ideas that will help out in the future. You won't stay an inexperienced 16 year old forever, you know. You've got to grow up someday...

We like to help! Think of this as ecomodder university.

If you save some money later by getting better mileage think about donating and help us educate the next 16 year old newbie.

I'm on my way to donate right now...

Back on topic: Engine off at lights saves big. If you have a scanguage or mpguino you can watch the numbers fall fast. Savings are even greater if you are running alternatorless and you car does not have to recharge after each start.
