    I have 530 at the wheels and crush it every day. I drive it like I stole it - literally and get about 12 mpg...


    With stock injectors and a mild tune.

    21 mpg? Either a tune is a miracle worker or you were coasting downhill most of that trip. Not doubting but had never heard that a tune really squeezed that much out of these cars.

    I guess I never drive 3000 km at 60 mph. Speed limit is 70 in MI. I have got close to 20 once on a long trip with an average speed close to 65 actually driving through CAN.

    Hey, come on, you guys bought these family grocery getters for smiles per mile, (SPM), not miles per gallon (MPG).
    And you made them kooler, quicker, & faster for the same reason.


    jc09ctsv:
    I would like to check out your car sometime. You ever do Donut Derelicts in HB or Cars & Coffee - Irvine on Sat mornings?
    Who did the work on that thing?
    What's your combo?
    And how do you like it?

    No I have never done donuts for derelicts where in HB is that and when I would like to come sometime

    ----------

    I have a 2.5 upper pulley and a airaid intake and a custom tune done by Shawn church at church automotive. Got the pulley installed at racers edge. And put the intake in my self. Love how the car feels now. My next step is going to be larger injectors and a custom tune so I can run E85

    No doubt petrol is in my entertainment budget.
    Just sometimes you have a 300 mile trip between Detroit and Buffalo and stopping in CAN for gas is about the last thing I want to do.

    Corner of Adams & Magnolia. Starts about 5AM, most cars show up about 6AM, goes on until about 8AM or 830AM, lots of Americana hot rod & high performance.

    No, that would not be on my list of favorite things to do either.

    Highway on CC during morning rush, she'll stay above 20 mpg up to about 80mph.

    14.5 average

    That's awesome. I don't give a shit if this car gets 5 mpg. But I still wouldn't mind if it did better. But I'm happy either way!
