Hey everyone!

Alright. My name is Chris

I've been into the mpg scene for quite a while, tried a few things, but nothing hardcore. This summer I am going to be doing some major testing and mods etc in terms of everything but especially aero mods.

I have a '95 Geo metro 1.0L 5 spd

Hope there's lots of good info here - it looks like there is!!

Chris

Hey Chris! Good to have more

Hey Chris!

Good to have more Metro people here. I think in the long run you Metro guys will always win compared to us Honda guys.

Anyway, what type of stuff have you tried before?

And now you see my master plan. I'm rooting for a Metro/Civic Hybrid car.

That's a good way of putting it.

I'm part of the Great Crowd or however the Jehovah's Witnesses put it that just won't quite make it into heaven when the judgement comes (I dwive a honda that dun run quite right, I think, it made a smell or I am just imagining it or it is electrical tape and not an issue, we shall see).

Haha ,yeah...I was referred

Haha ,yeah...I was referred by Darin (metrompg).

He told me to come here, I believe so I checked it out. I've foudn some good info here, definitely. But I haven't even started to do searches through the archives or anything. Been very busy lately. As of now, what have I done.... Hmmmm...

I've...bought a metro? LoL This is my second metro. First being a '91 chev. sprint with a 3 cyl as well. It ran so good I kept the drivetrain for a spare. So, basically I'm just starting out. I've been looking into this kind of stuff for years now, just not much experimentation. I practice efficient driving.

At one point I had a hydrogen booster in my old car. It only lasted a couple of months because I took it out, but it definitely worked. I'm working on an improved unit as we speak. (This area I've been working with for many years now).

I just recently put acetone in the tank to try it out. I want to prove or disprove for myself, since there's lots of conflicting information.

My future plans: mostly aerodynamic, with a hydrogen booster.

Chris
