I was on the gasbuddy.com forums right around hurricane katrina time. Gas prices were up and i was looking for ways to gain some mpg. svoboy would post on the forums back then and had something about gassavers in his signature. I lurked on the forums for a bit and svo PMed me about something. That was enough for me to remember the site name and keep comming back.
So thanks svo!
2008 EPA adjusted:
Distance traveled by bicycle in 2007= 1,830ish miles
Average commute speed=25mph (yes, that's in a car)
SVOboy found me on Honda-tech. I thought that acetone could help mpg so I started a forum on Honda-tech in engines, the moderators put it in GDD, then docked me for 2% off my sig. The elder members thought that the small concentration of acetone would actually hurt the fuel system. I put it in for 2 tanks and my car is still running, but eventually, that thread was locked. So I went through the thread and started to pm people that thought I was doing good work. SVOboy said to come over to this site to find real ways to gain mpg. so....here I am. Raised my mpg from 32 to 43 -- just in driving technique!
