Hello, it's my first day here. I am by NO means a hypermiler, I get about 19.5-22 MPG lol. I drive a 2007 Mazda 3 2.0L MT. Coming up to my 40,000 mile tune-up. I really could care less that I get terrible economy, the car is a joy to drive. Most of my interest is in aerodynamics
Whats going on everyone. Name is John and im a college undergrad at UVM. I've joined the site to learn more about Natural Gas combustion engines, especially with the U.S. holding some of the largest nat gas reserves in the world. I drive 2001 chevy cavy. I'm sure ill learn alot more about car specs too as I start to browse.
It really is! I bought it earlier in the year from an older gentleman for $800. Only had just over 125k miles on her. All I had to do was replace the alternator, a few spark plugs and the front struts and bam good as new! Nice little 4-cylinder car for my local commutes and its great for delivering pizzas part-time with 26mpg.
Hi. I'm a 21 year old and I've learned some parts of Hypermiling which has helped me save fuel, I have a Scangauge II in my dad's 2000 Dodge Caravan and I usually get over 21 MPG in it. "My" Car is a 1984 Chevy Caprice with a 5.0 Litre Engine and a 4-Speed Automatic Transmission. It was tuned up last year with new spark plugs; Spark plug wires; 5w20 or 5w30 Full Synthetic Oil; A new fuel filter and a new oil plug. I usually have the tires inflated to at least what the tires call for though I've also had them up to 50. I'm not sure of the MPG I get in it but it's rated for 14 City and 20 Highway. I'm sure I get better than 14 on the low end from hypermiling techniques, Are there any engine modifications I can do to make the car more efficient?
