You don't need to see my identification...
Hello everyone!

Looking forward to improving the gas mileage on both my vehicles.

The van is probably about right, and more out of my control as my wife drives it... The 240sx is all me, though... and most of the improvements have been due to "fixing it up" .. Got a ways to go for sure, though.

Welcome to the site.

Tell me about it! I deliver pizzas 3-5 times/week and commute to an office 3 miles away and commute to an office 3 miles away ...

I've got a couple more repairs to make to the car and them I'm out of ideas:

* CV axles and/or wheel bearings in back are bad
* I think one of my front calipers is seizing intermittantly.
* I may have a vacuum leak somewhere, I've been slowly replacing every vacuum line I can find, but practically everything on the car is vacuum-driven. TONS of vacuum lines.

BenKenobi -

Welcome to EM! Getting the 240SX all tuned up is the right way to go.

It was very frustrating at first .. Check the history via the link in my sig ... At one point my van was getting better mileage than the 240 ... That's infuriating :)

So far, the biggest jump in FE happened after I found out my ignition timing was VERY way off. Instant jump.
