Hello from Northern Virginia!

Hello Folks!,

I would like to introduce myself. I live just outside of DC, about 45 miles out in Leesburg, VA.

Vehicle #1 -- 2002 Ford Explorer 4x4 XLT 4.6. This is my tow vehicle for our trailer and it gets horrible mileage. Luckily I ride the bus to work, so I am only driving it a couple of mile a day. I get 12-14 MPG usually right now, which is pretty horrible, but my drive to the bus lot is only 2 miles.

Vehicle #2 -- 2003 Toyota Sienna CE -- Surprisingly, we get 27 highway and 22 around town without any efforts -- I would like to push that up a little.

Vehicle #3 --? I am considering purchasing a gas saving car, a Metro or Civic for errands, but I am not sure about how much I could save versus just working with my existing vehicles.

I am not much of a hardware guy, so a lot of these mods are pretty intimidating! For now I am going to try pumping up my tires, ditching the roof racks this weekend, and getting synthetic oil, as well as driving slow and easy.

Anyway, welcome!

Welcome! Good to see you're putting your vehicles in the garage and posting gaslogs. I'm not too far from you, in Charleston, WV.

Keep posting - we'll help you get your MPG up!
