i have a stage 2-protune catless dp/turbo back if I'm just cruising i from a full to empty tank i get about 310-320 miles, if I'm beating on it i get about 250, which still isn't bad i only have a 8 mile round trip everyday. and the powers there when i need it. no complaints

With my mods and tunes I get about 20mpg. Drive your car, short shifting is not doing you any good.

35 psi all around tire pressure, outside temp. above 50-- normal driving with WOT runs once, twice a day my car got 28 miles per gallon. That is beautiful...
I just sea foamed my car--intake tract input point for the sea foam--and will check again this week. Should be better.
P.S. You know what is interesting, my neighbor just bought an xB previous gen, and he got 32 mpg. That is only 4 mpg difference, or about 40-50 more miles a tank, we both still have to fill out on the same day for two weeks, and then i have to do it one day before him.

drive = freedom

it all depends on if you driving in the city, or highway. I have bigger injectors, turbo, and fuel pump, and i get 200- 220 out of a tank driving in the city, But if i fill up and go on a road trip, driving all on the freeway I'll get 320-350 out of a tank. the stop and go is what kills your gas mileage. you motor has to turn 4 wheels instead of 2.

we are at 3.79 for premium here in TX, it's ridiculous. (i probably shouldn't complain, i know it's worse in other places.)

i saw on the news that a major oil refinery out in the Atlantic has shut down, so not looking good for fuel prices in the near future.

rollin on 17's now and they're dirty

Last edited by mosc; 04-29-2008 at 02:25 PM. Reason: The atlantic is big, it starts with a big letter. tx is even bigger so it gets 2 capitals.

Exactly what I've been thinking for the past month. But my K5 Blazer would've needed to be filled up twice as often as my WRX!

3.89 now, and it was an oil refinery in the Mediterranean Sea that supplied 1/3 of the oil to the u/k. there workers went on strike and should be up and running again by Wednesday.

I'm thinking about getting a Honda as a beater.
