I am a fulltime Firefighter/Rescue Tech/Hazmat/EMT-B in North Carolina. I also help my wife at her elementary school. I just started here with my 2002 Honda Civic Si (hatchback one) I would love to get in the 40mpg gang, but my goal first is from 26mpg to 30mpg... This will be my last month of 95% city driving. YEAH!. I will be going to 95% highway =) soon. Also this is my first tank of trying out any conserving tips. Loving the neutral glide, espescially when my speed goes from 40 mph-60 mph. In the city I have some gradual down hills that I have to slow down or I could get pulled over. I actually passed someone coasting LOL on about a mile section. I wonder if I told the cop, "Well officer, I was trying to conserve gas." If that would work.

first time here. I manufacture various parts out of fibreglass and do some carbon work as well when the client can afford it!! Have been involved in motorsport for many years and have always been fascinated by aerodynamics and even more by how little the average pit lane "expert" actually knows. Here to learn and to find what parts I coud manufacture here in South Africa.

A&P for the largest regional airline in the US for 11 years. Was in charge of heavy inspections for 4 years and got hired into the Engineering dept. as a structures engineer. Was also involved in the field as an accident investigator and worked as a company rep for 1 major accident and several other incidents, alongside the NTSB. Got tired of living in TX and came back to MI. Now I am a computer support tech for a natural gas company in MI.

Senior Aeronautical Engineering Student - Clarkson University
Soon to be USAF 2Lt, Developmental Astronautical Engineer

I've always been interested in how things work and taking stuff apart to see how it works. (Not being able to re-assemble a television comes to mind... parents were super happy about that)

I've modified just about everything i've gotten my hands on. In high school it was computers, now its cars and anything else that comes between me and a wrench/screwdriver. I work for a welding company during my summers.
