Hello group--

Nice to be here where people don't think I'm crazy for driving for economy. I've driven for economy for the last 37 years (my first car was a '69 VW Bug best MPG was 37 back in the early 70's) My daily driver is an 04 Dodge Sprinter van that I drive 38,000 miles per year. For a huge van, it does pretty well! For the first 18 months or so, I kept a log of my MPG's, which averaged 23.15. Since I bought it new three years ago, I've removed the mud flaps, added a K&N air filter, folded the (huge) mirrors as close to the body as possible, and installed an engine chip. Now my MPG is in the 24-26 range, with a best of 30.67 on my last trip. All of this is with just "normal" driving. There are a few mods I'd like to try in the future.

Welcome to the boards!

I'm sorta jealous, Sprinter vans are frickin' sweet! Bigger and 2x the MPG of any comprable box van, not to mention a hekuva lot more reliable.
I've really liked them ever since Car & Driver did a review of it and had a pic of them rolling a Locost 7 into the back.
