Nice!

If you really want to have fun playing with the MPGs in the mountains, try popping it into neutral on the downhills. You can get 100+mpgs sometimes, which really helps the average.

I've been looking at the rear hood to cowl seal, thinking I could cut it back, or remove it entirely, and/or raise the rear of the hood a bit to allow hot air to escape that way. Only problem is...

Did you remove the mechanical entirely, or just add the electric? Removing my mechanical entirely seemed to help, as the block isn't heating the pump and the fuel that passes through it. I hear...

yeah, a return line to keep the fuel moving should make it a lot more reliable. I'm just kind of hard-headed about trying to keep things in a factory configuration, but this modern gas seems to boil...
