^^ I had this delete done for 3 years before getting a tune. i was getting consistent mid 20"s around town with a heavy foot and in the 32 range when used only on freeway. perhaps you had other issues that may have been amplified after the EGR delete?

Mine is not tuned. Maybe that could affect it. What tune do you have?

That is when I had no tune. after getting the tune it may have changed my city MPG by .5 or 1 but IMHO is in the noise. i saw no fuel economy change with and with out tune. bough car with it deleted so dont know my MPG with EGR hooked up and no tune.

Oh I see. My car came with it deleted also and it seems to burn a lot of gas. I was told its due to egr but mostly headers no cat exhaust.
