YOu may have gained 1mpg, but it's possible that it was due to something else. Was the 1mpg statistically significant?

BTW, the best way to ensure you don't lose posts is to copy them to your clipboard (select all of the text, and then hit CNTRL-C). In the event you lose the post you can just hit CNTRL-V (paste) and it will be back.

Now this is something that I think it is very important to test. Unfortunately I don't have it, yet, on my Wagovan. I did however finally begin getting some cold air out of the A/C I have been attempting to put into my daughters 87 Civic. My 4/60 A/C is really the pitt's.

Besides my willingness to test my A/C when I can finally get it in, I would be willing to test the turbonator. However, at the moment I don't have any scan tool, so all of my testing is largely by the tank, which is also not very fine in any one tank's absoluteness. Gas pill's, I still have memories of experiencess with the "brown crud" in my fuel tank and system, so I am not really inclined to be testing that stuff.

The biggest issue is too many variables were changed to make it a valid test...

Different speeds, different temps, different wind conditions. Needs to be round-trip, back to back.

At least it was all highway driving!
