When I had my 2000 Kona with intake I averaged about 275-280 per tank. When I got the 2003 zx5 earlier this year I was pleasantly surprised to be averaging 320-330 with no mods at all except Ford Racing 9mm red spark plug wires. Drive it.just the same as I did the Kona and and the same route to work. Not sure if Ford revised the fuel maps and engine mgmt to get an increase in fuel efficiency or the Kona being a few years older just sucked more gas period. Just know the 3 years I had the Kona my mileage never changed. Once I get around to putting on my cai and doing my SVT header conversion(only need 1 more part) I will be curious to see what happens to my mileage in the zx5.
