I was surprised at how much difference just a few mph makes. Last tank I kept the speed just a few mph higher (keeping up with nascar wannabees) than the last and was rewarded with 2.5 mpg less (about 28mpg). I normally count on approx 450 miles per tank.Deserion said:I'll echo hannaco's comments on speed/tire pressure/etc.
If you keep your speedo exactly at what the posted speed limit is, you'll get much better mileage. I was able to eke out almost 400 miles (well, 399.1 before I chickened out) out of my NBC 1.8T. And I've also been able to log over 430 miles on a tank on my 2.0L.
Easy acceleration (no over-revving), no speeding, proper tire pressure. Those three things will ultimately save you more money than that metal thief will.
hannaco said:That very well could be. Have you checked everything? What is your driving style? A lot of short trips? When was the last tuneup? Bigger than stock wheels/tires? What is your tire pressure?
When was the last time the throttle body was cleaned?
Do you have a body kit installed?
You are using 87 octane gas, eh?
