At 75 mph I can get around 24mpg on the freeway while at 55 mph I can get upwards of 28mpg. Step on the happy pedal however and it all goes to hell!

Never got a TRUE mpg due to a leaking fill tube gasket but it stayed exactly same as when it was N/A (23-24mpg) as long as Im not in it all the time.

On the highway, my mpg is much better then before (28-30 vs 22-23)

I know it MUST get better mpg... I get the same miles per tank and have yet to run a whole tank without getting in it a few times lol..

NEVER do business with Sam Rivera AKA Sam Wilson.

Very similar to a stocker around town. I get like 15 around town if I am all over it and 17-18 with reasonable driving.
Never really ran the current tune on the highway. Earlier tunes got 24+ mpg at 80 mph.

21-22 farting around country driving.

Haven't gotten to get out on the highway and just cruise to see what it would do.
