This last tank was only 20mpg combined for me. Hopefully this tank will be better now that I'm getting my AFR leaned out and overrun tuned.

Revlimiter.net. He sells awesome stuff. A little pricey, but worth every penny.

BTW, I love your car.

Not gonna lie, I miss megasquirt. the car made a decent bit more power with that being the only change. plus last time I took a long road trip it did fantastic.

Charlotte to Atlanta, Drove the **** out of it at RA. Immediately after RA, filled her up and drove 8 hours strait to Ohio, 31 mpg at 60-90 mph, sometimes hitting 100 going downhill. and most of that was mountain highways. Very soon it shall be MS again

Took the passenger seat out, dropped it off at a friends house, who is a upholster. Changing from torn tan leather to black vinyl seat material from Sierra. Will post some pictures when finished.

Default Added 2 more 12v outlets

As I was driving to the N.GA mountains Sunday, I noticed once again that it's areal PITA to drive with only one out 3 things I really like to have working bin my car. If the radar detector is used, the GPS is not, if I need to charge my iPhone, I gotta ditch the RD or the GPS... I have one of those little dongle things that make 2 outlets out of the single one, but I left it at home plus I hate the wires all hanging in the shifter area and bothering me.
So I stopped at a Walmart (those things are *everywhere*) and picked up a 1 to 3 adapter and just threw in on the pax side floor and happily used all my devices . Tonight I decided to make a more permanent and cleaner installation. It does not look as good as I wish it did, but it's tolerable *and* it works! BTW, I cleaned and conditioned my shifter boot too





The flash of the camera makes it look worse than it actually does.

Default Justified!

Yesterday the gate guard at the base told me that he hasn't seen a Miata as clean as mine in about 10 years. It looked like it rolled off the showroom floor.

After lunch, going through the gate again another guard told me I had a pretty neat car, and asked what kind it was. I told him it was a Miata and he asked if it was new. He was shocked to hear it was 20 years old.


Hell yeah.
