Thumbs up This is fun!

Since my gas hog AMX is off the road w/ radiator problems, and my T-Type's
resurrection is one step up, 90 steps back, I'm glad I've been able to put some time into the MPG game. And for once I have a success story at something! My first tests consisted of a new [for me] vehicle, in as purchased condition. 2004 Cavalier w/ a 2.2 Ecotec engine. I base lined @ 30 MPG combined. I next increased my tire's air pressure to 45 PSI, and adjusted my driving style to try and increase MPG. Today I ran my numbers, and I was @ 35 MPG. Picked up 5 mpg! This is cool! I have some Brisk sparkplugs on order, so they will prolly be used in my next battery of tests.
