I thought I'd do the polite thing and post an introduction.

I've been hypermiling for years and was active on another forum until life got too hectic. It's still that way, but the old car had to go away and I'm busy learning the tricks and sweet spots of a new-to-me vehicle. Logging data and watching trends are a big part of that for me, so I thought I'd try out the garage here.

I see some familiar names, so hello to old friends from the other place!

I have a lot to learn about driving the Versa (just filled the tank for the first time to have a valid starting reference), but I've already taken a wrench to her and there's coroplast in her future, ha ha!

I won't be as active here as I'd like due to limited time, but I'll try to chip in and help where I can.

Cheers,
Rick

Thanks, skyl4rk.

And for the record, my coroplast comment in part refers to following in your grille/valance blocking footsteps.

Though sadly, I wasn't able to secure a Versa in "Coroplast White!"

Standing on the shoulders of giants,
Rick

Thanks, CarloSW2.

I've done nothing photo-worthy yet. I pulled the back seats (nearly 64 pounds worth!) and am about halfway done installing a load floor (which will add back less than ten pounds). But i'll happily share anything that might benefit others.
