Hey, I'm new.

Ello everyone, my name is Jared and I'm from Cookeville Tn. I just bought a 1992 Taurus wagon and I'm looking to make it a more effiecent vehicle (I know it's a boat). My wife and I also have an 03 Sentra that gets good mileage already, but I guess getting better would never hurt.

From what I've seen already I think I'll be undoing the cool air intake I made for the Taurus this morning, good thing it only cost $7 to do. Any hoo, I'll take any advice on the Taurus anyone has to offer.

See you around, Jared

Welcome! Your cool air intake need only be turned around to pull air from inside the engine bay, then it's a warm air intake, which helps on many cars.

I recommend first getting a baseline in the stock configuration, since you're new to the car. Enter your car in The Garage, then enter all your fuel economy information in the gaslog. For greater accuracy I recommend not topping off when you fill (just let the pump click off), and try to fill on the same side of the same pump; this helps keep your data accurate so you can know if something you've tried has worked.

I tried that last night with a little bit of a frightening result, I don't know if the maf sensor didn't like it or what but it wasn't fun.
