Lindermant: Welcome to Gassaver's. I would have to agree with SVOboy, on your gearing. If your able to get the gas mileage you have described, with that gearing, you are doing pretty well.

rh77, modification of the driver is ongoing - but the SG-I is the tool to show me when I drive like a bonehead I've looked into both a block heater, and a wolverine oil pan heater; but my car is in the garage, and I can't plug it in while at work so I'll hold off on those for the time being.

Think seriously about some tires with a larger OD (outside diameter)! You need to get that RPM down(aim for 1600 or so) in high gear. -Ted Hart

50 MPH is good ; no more! Actually, pitot tests show 47 MPG is when the pressure begins to build ... for a square-ended shape moving through a gaseous medium. And pressure must be overcome to continue... requiring more gasoline/throttle. At less than this speed, forces to be overcome are rolling friction, deflection friction 9tires), and bearing friction. -whitevette

Welcome lindermant, I am already jealous that you have a scangauge. I didnt see it on the list but Tire Pressure. I run mine at 60 pounds (I know I know sounds nuts but so far so good). Good luck and enjoy the site.
