drew7811 is on a distinguished road

I drive about 22 miles to work each way. I trip the computer in the dash in my driveway before my morning commute (I set the cruise between is 5 am though) and it shows 21-22mpg for the way to work. On the way home I am driving much more agressive and when I trip the mileage computer again, I get home and it shows about 16-17mpg for the ride home. It's a 70% interstate drive/30% secondary roads. Overall, my last two fill-ups have seen 17.9 and 17.6 respectively on the ECU for the full tank. Prior to getting my K&N drop-in I was seeing easily 1-2 miles per gallon less economy so I am a believer that the filter works for sure.

Oh yeah I always run 89oct too.
