Hi Everyone,

It's been a while since i've last posted here lol. this winter has made me super lazy with the ar and all i've been doing with it is shoveling it out of the heavy snowfall we've gotten in NJ. but now that it's been a bit nicer as of late... time to get active again. weird correlation, i know...

Anyway, I took delivery of my 2013 CT200h F-Sport in Ultra White back on 1/12/13. Here are the mods i've thrown on their in my first year of ownership. Below is the part and date of its install.

I'll leave it to your imagination on how some of these mods affected aero, weight, etc. thus ultimately affecting my mpg (maybe...).

I drive kinda hard off stops to pick up speed fast then drop it to glide around. i generally go 5 to 10 mph over the speed limit.

All mpg calculations are done manually post fill up. i record things in notebook i leave in a car then update my ongoing excel spreadsheet i use to track parts and mpg/fillup stats.

I live in NJ where roads are gross and i've seen all the seasons.

My commute to work is 50 miles round trip. a fair amount of highway driving.

Drum roll please....

For 1/12/13 to 1/12/14 .... 18,798 miles driven, an average of 43.3 MPG, an average paid of $3.35/gallon for regular gas, and spent $1,483.81 on regular gas (I typically fill up at a Valero and Gulf near my house) ... HOW EXCITING.

Not bad MPG. Nice mods. So you didn't modify audio - not your thing ? Just curious - did you leave OEM tires on ?, because I really, really disliked them. But replacing them did lower my mpg.

What was your source for the TOMS interior accessories (shift knob, Start button, etc.)?

I didn't get around to do any audio/electric related mods. perhaps a little later. I swapped over the OEM tires because I got the wheel and tire insurance with them for a fairly low price. I got the chance to utilize once because i managed to get a flat while i got into work. somewhere between the front entrace and my parking spot, i musta ran over a nail. I got the whole tire replaced, no cost to me.

what tires/specs are you running now?

wow. quite a bit of mods, must cost a fortune.

pretty good mileage considering that you mentioned that you pushed it hard.

i am getting slightly better MPGs, around 45 with normal driving style
