Default Greetings from central WV!

Hello guys, my name is Jerama... Iím new here but not new to the brand, having bought an SL1 and L200 for my ex wife and Iím driving my second ION (current is an 04 ION-2 sedan and I had an 04 ION RL prior to that), and my wife drives an 06 ION-2 coupe...

My car is pretty heavily modded, Iíve done the work as time and cash flow has allowed, once Iím able Iíll link to my build on another site(easier than rewriting everything here)... I do believe in function and ROI over form so some mods look a little haggard for sake of cheapness, but the end result isnít what Iím after... after all itís just my 45+mpg commuter car, not made for winning shows

Sounds good, Jerama! Welcome to SaturnFans.

294,000 miles-it keeps on rolling!
The blessings of liberty erode in my country.
Gov't's grown bigger, but a chance exists that it will be reduced. I'm cautiously hopeful.

Thanks for the warm welcome, and Iím glad to be a part of the Saturn community as much as I can... hopefully my experience with modding my own car can help others with fixing or modding theirs...

45 mpg out of an ION? Color me impressed. When I was looking, I decide against any IONs because the MPGs were lower than the S series.

Looking forward to your link - you can always post it but replace the dot with words
(e.g., SomePage@domain[dot]com)

Iíve been consistently north of 45mpg all summer, with two tanks *just* above 50... driving style has a large part in that, as I use the ďpulse and glideĒ driving style, meaning that either my engine is off or Iím accelerating, with little in between
