yeah it doesn't sound right.
Canada uses metric system, which means Kilometers per Liter, instead of MPG.
Anyways here's the conversion

1 mi = 1.609 Km
1 Gal = 3.785 L

1.609 / 3.785 = 0.425

therefore:

1 mpg = 0.425 Km/L
1 Km/L = 2.353 mpg

Attention Canadians... to do the conversion just multiply your Km/L by 2.353, and you get the correct equivalent mpg, so we can all speak the same language

I don't know what I get though, I don't drive my car much, so mpg are not a real concern for me at the moment. But I do know that I get around 350 mi on a full tank (highway)

Well, a couple of months ago I would have told you 31 mpg. Then I put on the P Zero Nero M&S, and had an alignment done at the same time. Was I every upset when I lost 4 mpg in the process. Would always consistently clock about 360-370 miles to a tank, mostly highway driving at 75. Now I'm lucky to get 320 miles to a tank. There was not that much change in the alignment specs, except I had way to much toe in on the right rear and that was corrected.

Wow, so bigger wheels/tires also = worse mileage? And I've read a few times that bigger tires takes away from things like 0-60 or 1/4 mile times. I'm actually thinking of getting 15" rims to go with my stock rubber, and just live with the gap in da wheelwell.

I get about 14-16mpg on an open throttle loop; the runs so rich, the dyno I put it on could only go to 7:1 air-fuel ratio, but it's even worse than that!

I have been averaging 20-21. I regapped my plugs and adjusted my tire pressure, so now, I'm getting about 23. My car is all stock with about 5800 miles, and I drive just to and from work (about 10 miles each way). I am planning on driving it to see some friends and family in a couple of weeks, if I can convince my wife and son to go along with it. That's about 200 miles each way. I should be able to open it up a little bit.
