Two tanks in a row over 28 mpg! Okay, for most of you that's nothing, but for me, it's a first...

Maybe not worth a CD of cowboy songs, but I'm happy. :-)

Bill, that is good. I've wanted to ask if you are using your air dam now?

Sounds like maybe you are driving quite differently now?

PM address. All members, especially from Texas, need Cowboy Songs.

Thanks! I am not using the air dam right now. With the belly pan on, it seemed that maybe the air dam would be doing more harm than good. I have an interstate trip coming up that will be a good test of my aero properties, and I will make a judgement on the dam after that. That test will be 70 mph, A/C blasting. No technique allowed when the family is on board. If I end up putting the air dam back on, I hope to motivate myself to A-B test it with the belly pan in place.

With my family having been out of town, I am able to coast a little longer/slower, P&G a little more, time lights a little better, etc. So, I think part of the gain is attributable to technique improvements.

I'll PM my address. I'm looking forward to the CD. Thanks!

Nothing improper taken, Bruce. I was just trying to stir the teams up ;-) Good luck with your mods.

New PB

I've just entered a new Personal Best in the garage. 473 miles on 12.6 gallons for 37.47 mpg. Mods on this tank were XcelPlus Lubrilon engine treatment, and lower oil level in engine.

Oh yeah, Go Team OPEC Busters!

Good work, Man -- hail Porthos!

How is it going with the heat? Today, something melted on the hatch latch and it's busted . I mean, it's not any hotter here than many parts of the Country, but lately it's been noticeable...

Stupid question. But 12 Midnight means Sunday night right?

Might have to make a trip to Hamilton Sunday morning to go check out a used road bike, which means 1hr hwy each way. Last ditch bannana tactic!

Arrrghghghgh! Several short trips needed to repair broken side glass on wagon - slid on wet road. The rainy days also took their toll, tank was 29.04 mpg. Last tank for this FE Challenge for me; wife and I are off for the weekend in a rental car with a/c; ours have no a/c.

I still say - Go Leftover Bananas!!!
