Told you so, told you so!

Where's the 110 segment!?

Hell, I'll settle for 105.

Without. Best I've been able to manage with the belt is around 100.

Edit: which, now that I think of it, is actually an improvement since my previous best of 101 was without the belt.

In mpg vs. speed - metro graph, I wrote. ...

Quote:
I realized last night that my claim of 8.x% improvement with the taller transmission is faulty, because I based it on the colder ambient speed/mpg data. The actual transmission improvement is less.
There was a 20+ F difference between the runs I was comparing.

I'm going to have to hunt around for some more relevant mpg data for a better pre-tranny swap comparison. I'm surprised nobody called me on my exorbitant claims!

(Anyone want to buy of my some bio-fuel pills? They really work!)

I didn't think 8.8% was all that much,
