Hall I am New to this forum.
I got my ProMaster in May 2015. Now it has 3,700miles ODO.
I am working Hady-man ((retired-R-diver).
I sold my Sprinter in December 2014, first wanted to buy MB Sprinter, but service center ~100miles away from my work-shop.
My Dodge service is about 2miles away:)

Welcome.

From the looks of the advertising on your rig, you have some of the skills to out-fit you PM. Good Luck.

Anywhere near Western Massachusetts? Might need some aluminum welding done...

Thnx everybody for Warm, Welcome to a PM Forum.
It is warm here in Florida, I live in Panama City zip 32401.
I do "on customer site" aluminum welding. I do use my 4 batteries and power-inverter from +12v to ~220volts.
Before I got my van, I made myself proof = I be able to weld from 3 batteries.

If you come down to Panama City, I will be happy to do your aluminum projects.

I do have my videos of ProMaster remodeling posted on a SOFABIKE chanel youtube

I HAVE to show how I got 30mpg.
1) NW Florida is generously flat.
2) I do watch my computer display "Instant MPG" constantly. Allways traing accelerate gradualy.
3) driving down-hill shift to neutral.
4) this summer I made only short trips (max-distance 60miles one-way) NO conditioner was used.

1.p.s. I think I may get more than 30.1mpg, because ever time I cranked motor, I let it run till it gets to NORMAL Temperature.
2.p.s. I did had Sprinter-2500 (5-cylinders), on a same routes never get more than 28.3mpg
3.p.s. I come here fro a Sprinter-forum with a same nick-name (unik)
