Telecommuting today since I

Telecommuting today since I am home with a sick child. So I guess I got over one bazillion MPG.

Last night I drove home through wind driven rain during a tornado watch and still managed 60.6MPG.

The drive to work today was

The drive to work today was only 60.3.

Probably had to do with only 30F, wet roads (temps were still going down, roads not yet frozen) and 18MPH crosswinds. It was nice to hold on to 60 however.

LOL, yes, I believe you will.

I just read what I posted again and it does seem that I am bragging. That is truly not my intention, just responding to Metro's question. Due to my weight reduction program, I only fill to 1/2 tank now so you should see weekly updates in the gaslog if you are interested. I will refrain from posting data on a daily basis. If you want more detail, just ask.

I will report on FE changes due to new mods however. The next FE related mod will be LRR tires with lightweight wheels. The auction for the HX wheels ends today (wish me luck). The tires are in transit. The diameter is 2" less than current so my ride height will be 1" lower. The new tread width is 5.0" vs 5.6" so less contact patch. The max pressure is 44 vs 35 so I will be at 60PSI. The new wheel/tire weight will be 25lb vs 34 lb currently, so another 36 lb weight loss not to mention the benefit in reducing unsprung weight. The only downside is the reduction in final drive due to tire diameter reduction. The distance parameter change to the SuperMID is pretty straight forward. I will have higher RPMs however. Good thing SVOboy is working on that CX tranny for me.

i vote for not refraining. i like seeing the daily fuel economy numbers. i often forget to look at the gaslog as well. we should have a "gaslog updated" thread in the forum that people can bump when they add a new tank.

think i'll go add that now.

COROPLAST!

Finally, found some coroplast in my area! Lowes and HomeDepot were not a help. Exhausted hardware stores and office supply stores (small pieces only). Resorted to sign shops and one turned me on to his supplier. Can't pick it up today because they are only open until 4pm, but called and they quoted me UNDER $10 for a 4x8 sheet! I hope they are not reading it wrong, but if anyone needs cheap coroplast in the Quakertown, PA area...I found the place
