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 02:10 PM

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

Bill in Houston 06-22-2007 03:55 PM

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

The biggest mod I've made so far has been to the driver. Driving habits are key for me. I'm takng it slow with aero mods and engine mods because, like so many people, I'm extremely busy.
