So what's everyone seeing for real world MPGs now that its been in hands long enough to get some actual civilized cruising in.

I'm guessing the first couple tanks went pretty quick :o

All I know is I chewed up about 1/4 of a tank driving back to work from the dealer, then from work to home. About an hour and a quarter total ride, 1/4 highway, 3/4 back roads.

I've noticed option sheets listed as 14 city and 19 hwy, and another 12 city and 18 hwy. Is this the manual vs. automatic?

The Automatic is the 12/18.

Chris,

You're not driving the car hard enough if you're seeing those numbers! :histeric:

I know, it's been a slop-fest here of late. :yawn:

I averaged 19mpg driving 70mph on a 300 mile trip.

Sent a ECM to wait4me to get his tune. His V2 saw a significant increase in mpg after tuning it.

The manual will get better results for sure.

Your right, took her out this morning and managed to burn through a whole tank already today. Gotta finish watching the Bears game and then back out I go. I am loving the dry saltless streets and the sunshine. Got 6mph this morning. Ouch, but so worth it. WOW!
