I would love to get into the "Top 10" list this summer. Try some aero mods and if I had the cash, I'd lower my car about 2-3 inches (can you tell I miss my Fiero?).

The mk 4/5 cars are pretty easy to lower with a cutoff wheel

Have you seen Shuga? (click to zoom)

I got to get my driving habits in order, some days I drive fast and some days slow. My commute is pretty consistent, just a few random trips here and there. I need to develop good habits and be consistent with my techniques. You can tell by looking at the peaks and valleys in my gas log that I am not too consistent.

I would like to do all that I can with my automatic DPFI CRX until I get together all the parts for an HF tranny swap and MPFI conversion.

I would like to hit an average of 45mpg with my current DPFI and automatic setup and keep hypermiler status through the winter.

Since I have installed my last major aero mod, my next step is to install a supermid and see how much I can improve my mileage with some instantaneous MPG feedback.

Basjoos, I'm amazed by your results with no feedback untill you refuel. can only imagine what kind of number you will achieve with the supermid

I bet Basjoos' "SuperMod" beats SuperMid.

My aim would be to get above 35MPG (US) average. Once I fit my EBH
(3kw coolant circulating one) + SuperMID, I would hope to get 40MPG (without any further mods except
driving style).

That said, my 90-day average is going to be down, due to lots of fast
driving recently, when testing my SuperMID This will soon be corrected
though - and then I look forward to very good results!
