Can you confirm or deny that Frank's tranny swap happened around the time of his 7th gaslog entry - where it jumped up? The notes don't say.

Yours & DaX's are more obvious.

Metro and Co. 6/23 was my last pre swap tank @39.8?mpg and 6/25 was the first post swap tank @43.?mpg. I have not gone consistently slow enough to see real results. Having the no torque b1 engine and the dpfi don't help.

Hopefully we'll both notice some increased traffic then. I was going to write an article on the 1930s aero car, but I never actually got around to it.

Life just keeps getting in the way of running a fuel economy website

After the swap I took a job 2 miles from home and stopped topping off the tank, so I didn't keep records. 2 years later I got a job 35 miles away with a long freeway commute. My driving habits also calmed down so my mpg jumped up.
