I do have a question about your increase in mileage. How many miles were on the car when you modified it? The gas mileage on a new car will naturally increase as the motor gets broken in. I'm curious to learn if some of your increase could be attributed to the motor "finding its grove". Perhaps the K&N filter also contributed to the increase MPG's?
