Hello easterner's! Nice to see so many from NS too.
I got my automotive diploma in college and got most experience with bikes and sleds.
I'm good with electronics and fuel systems too.
Eco-hacks for winter driving!? Does it ever hurt seeing mileage plummet so much in snow! Down to $10/100km, what the heck...

NO background! Just a community college student who wants to get into high-efficiency vehicles.

Come from a family of engineers, seems to be a place for me.

I'm a mechanical engineering student and I go to school 200 miles away from my hometown. Also, I currently work about 70 miles from my current place so I drive about 1000mi/wk during the summer and about 25k a year. Going from a 2010 GT to a 96 civic so its a lot better on my wallet.
