1000 Miles On two Tanks (Average Speed 71 MPH)

Well...... Almost Two Fills aswell LOL Had to put a gallon in after running out of gas at 496 Miles!!!

Thanks for the Picture... and the Thumb


Moved up to North MD this week and here are my awesome results.

Total Trip 988.8 Miles
Total Driving Time 13:49:34
Average MPG 39.6 First Tank (regular)- 40.4 Second Tank (93 Octane 2 Traffic Limited)

Mods: 2.0 Duratec Obx Headers (Yes they fit...) with Custom 2.5" Flex Pipe (No Catalytic Converter) 2.5" Borla Exhaust. Removed K&N CAI (the one ive been testing) for stock Box and K&N Drop in. H&R 1.5" Lowering springs. Gapped Spark Plugs .060 instead of .044.

Some more Pictures.






























With Premium 93 Octane I was running 75+ at 41+ MPG which is Much higher then 40.4 on regular at 73 mph. Premium Only for me Now!

Enjoy!

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.
