Hi, as seen on the pictures, you have almost 6000 miles on the car. Have your
consumption always been that high? How many miles before it gets that high? Mine has almost 2000 miles and I have been averaging 27.0 mpg with regular gas.

It has gradually gone up but the biggest gas mileage adders were modifying the exhaust system. Full Race systems open it up so much that i went from 31-32 at 75 to 40+

So its normal that I am consuming 27mpg now and I should expect it to increase as I get mileage?

That is nuts. Wonder how much the mods helped, our cars likely run rich from the factory.

I'm not interested in I/E but I kinda want to regap the plugs for sake.

Where in MD? I am a MDer, welcome.

What did your "Distance to E" say when you ran out?

It'll probably still be cheaper dollar wise to get the 87 octane and take the slight economy hit. 8% price increase for premium versus 2% economy hit for regular!

Some have reported drastic gains in economy, at 1700 miles I've see it go up maybe 2 mpg. Same as the previous new car I bought.

Mine has just over 7k miles, life to date MPG of 34.6, current tank of regular half gone 50/50 mix driving is at 40.8 mpg. Can't wait for winter mix to go away.
