What did you do to your F3X today?

Or, at least this week

I washed it Saturday morning and got the windows tinted that afternoon.

I reluctantly had to let my wife drive it as her car was in the shop. My knees were slammed together the whole day...

Put some air in my tires. I run MPSS and low temps are in the mid 30s, highs in the mid 50s, that time of the year when snow tires and summer tires both suck.

The gas savings is worth it, though. Even just driving in Comfort mode with moderate acceleration off the line, to be honest. I went through my last tank insanely quick because I was driving it, well, like a sports car. When I realized I didn't have to rush everywhere, I saw my MPG shoot up like crazy.

Then, this morning, I was running late. D'oh.

Well, that' one thing Eco Pro is useful for - to remind you not to drive like crazy.

Installed the Dinan intercooler, thing is a beast and has a cool lower scoop to pull air in from under the car. Plus looks like a beast with this intercooler behind the grill

Yeah ECO PRO is definitely worth using in rush hour since I'll typically have to accelerate from 0-25 to maybe 35-36 then back down to 0 over and over. I just have no reason to speed up fast only to to slam the brakes seconds later! (also makes one look like a douche) Even in this type of driving, I typically average 29-31mpg which is awesome. Then the evening rush, weekends and "evenings" in general hit then it's all out the door! It's a love/hate thing with that fuel consumption monitor, ESPECIALLY when running late

Since this is my daily driver and almost half the time I start out in some type of rush hour, I coded it to just start in ECO PRO....it also keeps me in check when starting my drive since the engine temp is cold

I do really like Eco Pro, and use it whenever I am in mind numbing hwy . I love the neutral shift when letting of the gas at hwy speeds. I just love the simplicity of it.

The coasting/sailing feature is what makes it "whole" to me, especially during my commute!
