Scangauge ignorance helps?

I haven't even looked at my mpg data since leaving and I don't mind a bit.
I'll see how much of a hit I take only when I fill up.
Please tolerate me while I toot my own horn. I got 59+ mpg on this past month's fill-up, 1050 miles on 17 3/4 gallons. I'm a bit surprised since:
I didn't even check the on-board MPG display during this tank;
I didn't drive for economy;
I dropped the tire pressure from 44 back to 36 psi.
The semi-annual interval between defroster season and A/C season really helps.

Well, as we say down here, it's a sad dog that won't wag his own tail. Translation: Toot your horn all you want. Nice job.

Aerodynamics Rules

More and more I am amazed at the positive effect that simple aero mods can have on mileage. Even the simple things that I have done have pushed my steady state mileage almost 25&#37; above highway epa.

Why aren't some of these things offered as an option from the factory?
