Typical drive today, about 20 miles. Picked up some paint for the porch chairs, then Wendy's for a quick lunch, back home to put some cabinets, I got for free, in the garage. At one point I was very close to 70 mg indicated until a couple of situations beat it down some. Final reading was 67.2. I would put the improvement at close to 4-5% all other things being equal (which they never are LOL). Think I'll try Craford road tomorrow. last time I hit 110 for the length of the road. 35-45 MPH with almost no traffic, perfect for pulse and glide (EOC).

Rims and tires installed today. I bought this car May 9th 2015, 31485 on the original tires today. Could have gone further but I got the itch to see the rims on this car. Looks like MPG hit will be in the range of 5%, probably drop some as they wear in. Tires did not need to be ANY larger, clearance to the skirts under 1 inch at 50% of max turn. I have not heard any rubbing but it is close. I can feel the 6% taller final drive difference and almost 200 RPM drop at highway speeds (used to be 3k at 60 mph, now just over 2800).

55.4 mpg last tank. I can handle that now that this car handles so well with the new wheels-tires.
