1) Getting the most out of lean burn

"window" and now he's getting lean burn earlier & more often under

a wider variety of conditions.

2) Honda Insight front wheel well tuft test study

MetroMPG compares (with video) the interesting front wheel well design

of a 2000 Honda Insight to his 1998 Pontiac Firefly (Geo Metro).

3) Project - Extended "Pop-Top" Aerodynamic Camper Shell ('99 Tacoma)

This fiberglass-over-foam work-in-progress is coming along nicely.

Aside from improving fuel economy, the goals include: enough room in

the "up" position for a raised floor to store gear beneath, while

still having room to sit up and move around comfortably.

4) The right wheel & tire combo gives ~20% better MPG

Wyatt replaced the 17" aftermarket wheels and tires on his 2004

Prius with stock 15" wheels and LRR tires and sees a massive ~20%

increase in mileage.

EV99Saturn shows off his electric Shelby Cobra and also asks for

help on how to increase the efficiency of the car.
