Default My mileage improvement...

Between yesterday and today I put on 300 miles. Most of it highway driving. I just got back from the gas station and I am getting 17.24 MPG.

Yesterday before leaving I changed the oil and added a bottle of Lucas injector cleaner to the tank. Prior to that I was getting 12.5 mpg. I have also discovered not hot footing it helps a lot.

Maybe I will one day get 20.
