update

Well again, thanks to everyone who has responded so far. I just got a MPG reading on ~255 miles, it was 28.25 MPG. So my first reading was possibly a little off, we'll have to wait and see a few more readings.

I'm waiting for the warmer weather to hit (maybe next week?) and then I'm going to do the tune-up and see how that affects the MPG. I'm also planning to take a trip to Lowe's (has anyone _been_ to Home Depot lately? They suck around me anyways) and see if I can find a decent metal material to work with, rather than going with plastic. Any suggestions?

That's really low mileage. I used to get those numbers in an auto Accord, city driving like I stole it. Have you modded the unit between the seat and the pedals yet?

I go to Lowes/Home Desperate 3x/wk. I've thought about the vinyl roll flooring as aeromod material before. Plastic is great because its weatherproof, and I see you get that cold white stuff on the ground.
