What brand? Do have the part number? And where did you get them. I couldn't get copper cores at walmart, autozone, or advance auto here. Please help a poor soul.

Topped of the tank today, 70% city no air and about 30% freeway driving at 60 with no air. Easy on the gas pedal....got me 35 mpg at the pump. I am figuring I will knock on the 40 number when we put it on the road for a few hour trip to Indy or up to Michigan in a week or so. I am running currently 36psi front and rear....I hesitate to bump it further as when the tires heat up you will gain psi and I lost a truck tire that way on a very hot summer day. I will keep the psi I have now and see how close I can get to the 40 number before I do any adjusting. Car is bone stock with the exception of a 14" antenna mod instead of the stock 6 ft mother!

According to my ScanGauge II, it doesn't have DFCO (deceleration fuel cutoff). I get 60-80mpg coasting in gear, 95-130mpg coasting in neutral.

As long as I keep my steel foot off of my pedal I can get 29 to 30 mpg.
However I like to play so I usally get 23-25. no mods.

07 ZX4 SES: It varies as expected...around town with a/c lots of stop&go, about 28mpg. Mostly highway at 65-70 and some a/c, 33mpg. This is a 5-spd and not even broken in yet, so hoping eventually for 35-37 for highway driving.

Ok, one more update....filled up after about 80% Hwy and 20% City today. City was with A/C and it was upper 90's for temps. Hwy was at about 60-62 mph and no air. Worked out the numbers and came out with 36 mpg. Have been very pleased with both the city and hwy mileage since buying the car! Will be making a run of about 4 hrs straight in a couple of weeks so will see what that gets me on straight interstate.

Was getting 26.5 consistently for years, until I started using what I learned on cleanmpg.com. Last fillup was 45.8, but I think I'll probably get around 40 on my regular commute.

Been using some of the tips on there myself. I've tune up my commute from 24 to ~31mpg. Hard to get good mileage here with the rolling hills.
