Block heater installs in Milwaukee
For those awaiting their installs, food, beverages and more importantly, camaraderie was readily available. As an added benefit available to the owners after their individual EBH installs were complete, Wayne Gerdes of CleanMPG was on hand to give a bare-bones Hypermiling clinic. One new MiHG member took Wayne up on the offer with his 04 Chevrolet Aveo w/ an AT. He found out it is now possible to achieve 40 + mpg around town. A mid 40 mpg Prius-II driver pegged his FCD (99.9 mpg) on an impromptu 4-mile round trip course located in front of the garage. A 50 mpg 2010 Prius-III driver pegged her FCD on the same loop as well. Finally, a TCH driver achieved a wonderful 77 mpg segment on the road construction oriented loop proving that even mid-sized Hybrid sedan drivers can double their vehicles EPA ratings when driven properly under the right conditions.
