Has someone with a scangauge or other reliable method checked for FE improvements at full tank-3/4 tank vs. 3/4 tank-empty? I just don't see it happening.
In my opinion weight reduction is one of those "last step" things, unless you are able to remove a few hundred pounds. I've mentioned this before, but my best tank was with a car full of people and luggage. Weight made little difference on that trip.

True, but that was in the days before CODFISHing, I'd wager. You can put that tank to shame with the stuff you've learned since then. And that happens to be the kind of driving that best benefits from reduced weight.
I tried the same 1/4 tank refill with the 4 cyl and found the opposite....less mpg...then found that the ECU controlled valve that bleeds the canister didn't work...had a good spare and put it in. Didn't retest to see if it made a diff.
Any gas getting to the canister was wasted.
Leading the perpetually ignorant and uninformed into the light of scientific knowledge. Did I really say that?
a new policy....I intend to ignore the nescient...a waste of time and energy.
I remember when the Geo got down to 1/4 tank or lower it really takes off at a stop light and pegs you back in the seat compared to it with more fuel in the tank. Guess the fuel is a higher percentage of the weight in it.
Let me get this right: You run the "stoplight Gran Prix" in a Geo? Why??? -Ted
