By chance do you run 10% ethonal gas? I seem to usually pick up 1-2 mpg running 100% gas 89 octane
You might have mentioned it but im too lazy to go back and look lol
not sure who's gas is ethanol and who's isn't lol. Usually go to a shell station, 20 cents off per gallon with a car wash purchase so lessens the cost of the wash lol. I fill up about every four days so she stays clean!

yeah I got anal and put the oil in at 1K miles lol. I always drive with the cruise on to save fuel unless in a hilly area and drive as fuel conscience as possible that way I can afford to romp on it every once in a while.
I should point out that I think she gets just as good of mpg 55 or under in 5th gear as she does doing 60 in 6th. Less On and off again with the MDS from the engine not having to push the taller gear.
