Official Second Gen Gas Mileage Thread!!
 
Hey guys! With gas prices rising I have shifted to slower driving and trying to get the best mpgs possible rather than hot rodding around haha.

I got to thinking about it and decided to create this thread for everyone to share the total miles they can get per tank of fuel!

Here is how it will work, post your total miles for your tank from full to the 50 mile light.
Also include what percentage was highway/city driving.
We can all share what we get and what mods we have along with driving styles and suggestions on improvement!

take a pic of the mileage with the receipt for the gas used for that readout(=
AND THIS WILL RUN ON THE TRUST FACTOR.. NO LIEING ABOUT GETTING MORE MILEAGE THAN YOU GOT LOL

NO CHEATING!

Lets get to it!
