I drive with the pedal to the metal pretty much all the time so I never see 300 miles on a fillup. I usually am filling up after driving around 220 hehe

doh

I've been able to tune some rather decent gas mileage in with the Link. The majority of my driving is mixed hiway/city. I usually see about 325-350 miles per tank. I just got back from a road trip a couple weeks ago and was able to get 417 miles out of a tank purely highway.

The Link may just pay for itself in gas bills in a couple years.

The Link? I am pretty sure I know what you are talking about but please refresh my memory on this product and the cost. Because if I could get 400 out of a tank i would flip!

Without the laptop right? Is that how much you picked yours up for?

Nekard: It was $1554 shipped with the board, SerialLink box(interface between the PC and Link) and software. You can look around as the prices have dropped a bit since they are around in mass quantities now. Check out http://www.carmodifications.com

Nerotic: I got my turbo from Godspeed. I paid $1550 shipped since it was leftover from his groupbuy at the end of last year. He usually groupbuys them for $1600 shipped. You might check out the classifieds on the irritable club for a slightly used since they have fallen out of favor with most of the top dogs. :-? :roll:

I personally like it. Mind you, I'm not Al or Nathan, but I don't see why so many take what they say as gospel.

Gas Mileage

I dont know about any of you guys but my gas mileage seems to be nothing of the what 25 highway and 20 in the city? I dont even know anymore. All that I do know is that even if I take her easy, 20 is a God sent for mileage. Anyone else got any problems like mine? Last tank I barely got 300 out her right before the light came on.
