I'm also wanting to block the lower grill, what material should i use. I really like the look for a rear OEM style spoiler (wing) what will that do for FE.


I have exact same car what you have. My upper grill is fully blocked and lower is blocked 50%. Rear spoiler will increase aero drag, thus will lower FE. I would recommended switch to full synthetic Mobil 1 5W20. Fuel warmer doesn't work, I've tried that already.
