New to everything
Good afternoon!! My name if John and I have been giving my hand at hypermiling for about a month now. I'm slowly getting better. I have a 1989 Buick Regal 3.1L V-6. It's always been ok on gas but, now it's getting better. W/out the use of all the tips and tricks here, I have managed to get it up to 28MPG!! I have now employed a few of the tips and I'm shooting for 35MPG!

Wish me luck and thanks for the site!!!!

Hi DoubleJ -

Welcome to GS! I read that you have made some aero-mods. When will you have pictures?

I will try to take some tonight. My garage has the post accident/pre-duct-tape-mod photo. Due to the wreck, I had to remove the entire front end. I did the best aero mod I could with the duct tape and about 30 minutes of work.

Coroplast is your friend!

I don't want to put that much time/effort/money into it. Just a few quick things to get her a bit better w/minimal work.

Pump up the tires.

GasSavers_DoubleJ 06-22-2007 03:10 PM

Tires are already at 45# even though they say 35# max

Bill in Houston 06-22-2007 04:55 PM

Okay, don't pump up the tires any further.
