Exclamation Extreamly poor milage!!!!

Ok, in my recent updates I have installed the Reactive Intake and done the Intake manifold mod as shown from waterboy. Other Addons are - New 150amp alt - However though I do see a deffinate increase in performace my milage in town has suffered considerably as of late. Its an AutoMatic trany and 2.0 SPI - (building a new Zetech do drop in later). Anyway current milage in town has dropped to around 12 mpg - Highway is still hovering about 25. The car never got much better than 28mpg before. I am wondering if anyone else has seen this kind of milage from there foci ? With the recent price of fule (premium only) over $2.10 a gallon milage is a concirn for me now.


Thanks

maybe your spark plugs need to be changed... thats what happened to mine and once i changed those, it was as good as new on gas milage. or get an aftermarket fuel pump.

Why does everyone say Reactive. It's Ractive...No "E"

It could be your DPFE sensor. Does it idle crappy too? My DPFE went bad, but no CEL. My mileage went into the crapper, as did performance. If you've got a CEL, you need to go to AutoClowns and get the codes read.

I have also had EGR, IAC, and O2 sensor issues. It could be any of them. Get in touch with Focuzsport or Focaltech and see what they say. I doubt they'd steer you wrong.
