Hi, I,m new here, but on my second foci. Luv-em!!

I get 26mpg in Buffalo with the winter fuel they use here. I would expect at least 28mpg in spring/summer. I just bought my 2005 ZX3 SE 2.0 dura, with 5 speed 2 months ago, so i cant verify that yet.

Car has 22k on it.

Oh I forgot to mention... We should all buy these off of ebay, they are only $10. They look SOOO helpful its just insane. I bet this would give is +15mpg and +30hp. What do you guys think?

Still no Mods but CAI/SRI is pending
THE FIRST YEAR, I have checked precise MPG on every tank since day one.
It started out at 26-27, by 6-8 months in it was up over mile, 27-28-29.
Then right about the year mark, a noticable move. 30-31... just breaking it in has had a significant effect.
