Getting happier with my FoFo

There's something to be said for everything being functional and having your car in a good state of tune.

(Duh).

When I got mine last month, it needed a thermostat and a tune-up. Did the 'stat and a quickie tune-up last weekend and watched my fuel economy go from 26.5ish to 29 mpg. Also noticed the gas gauge dropping appreciably slower. (240 miles on a tank before = needle near E, 240 miles now = 1/4 tank mark).

Once it gets a new fuel filter and synthetic gear/motor oil I'm sure I'll be over 30...

Yeah I'm mostly highway, some in-town driving. I'd say 70-30 split. I keep the cruise set to no more than 7-8 over the limit, that helps a lot too. "Set it and forget it"
