YKYAEMI: you tell yourself, after buying a car specifically for better mileage, that you HAVE to wait to do any ecomods so you can get a baseline first. But only a couple of days after getting the car, you can't keep yourself from doing a few.
Hey, their just little things!! Lol.

Ah cool you got your crx. With those miles you should carry an extra coil and ignition control module unless they were replaced lately (shop around the prices are all over the place, and the stock one is fine)

YKYAEM when you open your windows to slow down on a hill, because recovering a drag chute on the fly just isn't going to happen.

Ykyaem if when brushing the snow off your car, you can't help but make a snow kammback. The shape looks perfect but I don't think it will do too well with high speed testing.

You know you're a true Ecomodder if you track your fuel consumption to know how much cash you save on gas.
