Speed Sensor

well, i got a tip for ya.if you put any rims bigger than the ones your car came with.have your speed sensor recalibrated. i was getting shitty gas milage, terrible performance etc etc......took it in and had a NEW speed sensor put on and had it calibrated to my 17" rims and bingo.......i was getting 22-23 mpg, now im getting 33+ mpg..and much better performance.so if ya havent done this yet and you have put bigger rims...trust me it helps A LOT!
