And it's an upgrade.

YKYAEM when you ditch your 160hp econobox for a 305 hp all wheel drive sports sedan....

and you drive it just like your old econobox while achieving the same mpg as the econoboxes stock mpg

I had to go, though. Getting a 34+ mpg tank once a year in August when all the stars aligned just wasn't cutting it any more.

YKYAEM When you love getting stuck behind the slow car on the road because you get better FE and no one complains about your driving just the person ahead of you or if you're by yourself the people behind you aren't right on your bumper.

Or

When you've found a banked hill in the parking lot of the grocery store closest to your house that if you hit just right is enough to coast up to the sweet spot in the parking lot that isn't a 10 minute walk to the door but still always has a open space.

Or

When you've been trying to think of something original to post is this thread for weeks.

YKYAEM when the sweet parking space has nothing to do with how long a walk it leaves you and everything with the approach and exit.

. . . .when a guy rolls up next to you at a light in a Metro, and the two of you have a quiet conversation about gas mileage while you're waiting for the light to change, because neither of your engines are on.

When your mirror's are removed to lower cd you are most definitely a ecomodder.
With Cameras installed you are a safe one at that.

~ Someone wanted to know the watt consumption ~
I edit it away - POOF - gone

cameras use just 1w each the display is rated at 5w

So three cameras and 1 display could suck 8w of power out of the alternator.
Amassing no strain on the electrical what so ever.

He didn't try to cancel it out, just to point out that a true ecomodder would have calculated the power cost of the system... and you walked right into it!

Your both mistaken - A true ecomodder would know exactly how many watts the video mirrors use before he buys them , let alone installs them.

which was the case with this ecomodder

YKYAEM when your car is randomly dying at red lights and at first you seriously consider finding a way to consistently replicate the problem.....


but not fix it.
