That'd be basjoos. I haven't seen any of his posts here in a while. I think he's been more active in some of the other gas saving forums.

his car is "keeps on rollin'" he is in the top 10 FE for regular gas cars.

the one thing to keep in mind is that his coefficient drag is 0.17 or 0.16 either way his drag is next to nothing thus the huge FE gains.
