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?

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!
arggg! battery died on me last week. Then brake light was staying on and had to disconenct battery at work till i could get home and found it was a lil rubber piece that is on the brake pedal. now my scangague is all messed up so i'm not sure how good i am doing. currently at 110 mile with needle just under 3/4 tank left. going on a trip to the drag strip friday if weather cooperates.
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!!!
Currently getting +/- 50 mpg in fall weather. EPA is 31/39 so not too shabby. WAI, fuel cutoff switch, full belly pan, smooth wheel covers.
