Best i got was 19 at the end of summer. Was getting 15-16 when i first got it. Free flowing exaust really helped and so did my Banks intake. Now its winter and im getting 16-17.

I have a custom 3" intake, bored out throttle body, 2.5" catback exhaust (full with 2.5" tail pipe), electric fan conversion (i think thats about it on the performance side).. My rig holds speed at such low rpms with no problem, It runs very smooth so either people are wrong, or they are full of it, or repeating what other have said, or the mods actually make a difference and the people saying otherwise are still wrong.

Also cant forget i was barely getting 180miles per tank stock before the gas light turned on, now i go way past that. I just filled up today 271 on the odometer when the light first turned on and i filled up few tenths above 16 gallons.
here we go again

Here in Germany you cant do anything under 75 on the Autobahn with out going under the min. speed limit. Semi-trucks will pass you. I average 85- 95MPH and 9MPG. With a 2" lift 31*10.50.R15 M/T inflated to 45PSI, Dynomax Superflow cat-back, aFe cold air intake, Edge Trail Jamer chip, and a bored out TB.

its xmas time silly.. you know how busy roads have gotten around here? i was in indy the other day and i wanted to kill myself there were sooo many people there.. especially around the malls

i'd say after the holidays gas will be back down.. i always said wait until bush was gonna leave office.. then the gas would somehow drop back down to pre-9-11 prices
