This is just my daily driver.

thanks guys
I'm getting around 21-24 mpg depending on how aggressive I drive. I think that's about the same per tank your getting. It's my DD too. It's a lot more fun of a commute than my 99 Taurus SE I traded in on it about a year ago. I have just over 95,000 miles on it. I did the Stealth Cold air intake. I plan on purchasing an aftermarket kit sometime. I have not done a "tune" on it. Don't really have the cash to put down for that. Not sure I really need it right now.
I'm working more on aesthetics. I tinted lenses, painted my grill and lower grill black and need to fix the rusty rocker panels. The winters here in Iowa can be harsh. And whoever had it before didn't pay much attention to keeping the salt off.
2005 ZX4 ST, Stealth CAI (so far)
Used to have, and will always regret selling, 1970 Mach 1.
