This is a great and informative site! It is great to see others who aspire to acheive the greatest mileage out of their vehicle! I thought I may have been the only one of our kind - sometimes it appears that way based on the way many people drive out here in CA.
I sip gas to save money as well as wear and tear on my vehicle. Saves brakes, tires, transmissions, and hopefully will add some useful miles to my PT's life. Also saves on speeding tickets too - unless you coast down that hill just a little too fast!
I would like to see what some of the other PT owners in the forum are doing to improve mileage as well. As you can see from my garage entry, I don't have many mods to my PT - mostly stock, but it seems to get pretty fair mileage with a little effort. I run a bottle of injector cleaner every other tank or so to keep atomization up, I keep tires inflated and air filter clean. Thats it for now.
In my short time here, I have already learned some new tricks to improve FE. Keep up the good work.
Thankfully, the PT is a manual five speed. It coasts pretty well and there are a few good coasting hills on my way to and from work... the speed limit is 50mph and 55 on most other roads around where I drive. I think I have the terrain figured out at least where I normally drive. If I were to do all highway I think I would get around 27-28 or so...
