I assume your trip odometer was reset after your last fill up. Hmm, so 278 miles (if your car is anything like mine) is about 19mpg?

I get around 20-21 per tank mixed driving. It usually reads 320-330 before the light comes on.

Tyler911, the bumper tuck looks good. I like the look on my car.
BTW - What color is your car exactly?? Is it Deep Wedgewood Blue (color LL on door sticker)??

I'm sure the bumper tuck actually has an aerodynamic benefit too seeings how when its not tucked, if you will look at it closely, it looks to serve as a parachute type resistance to the wind coming up from under the car.

Nothing huge but you know they say "every little bit counts".

Yea I guess I walked into that one. LOL

I think I will do this too before getting the tail pipes installed on my mufflers. I definitely want that Marauder exhaust look, too.

I believe it's a maaco special. It's a few shades darker than dark shadow gray actually.
