23 mpg at 80? that is awesome. i am considering gears for my car but i'm affraid about the gas milage thing. do you regularly get 23 or was that i roadtrip? can you give me an idea of what kind of drop in mpg i could expect with the gears?

btw- i currently average a little over 20 with mine and have gotten a best of 24

That was on a trip from mexico to houston. As far as a drop or gain, thats my hwy miles. If I city drive it then I get @ 17mpg. If I race, well thats a whole oth ballpark. Each car acts different with gears. Some like them and others dont. I have only used 410's and gotten pretty lucky with them. I dont recomend these if you are a daily driver and dont plan on racing at the track. If I didnt race I think I would use 373. Just my .02

I'm getting 21 mpg with mostly city driving. Which is better than expected. I can tell a big differance when I'm having an aggressive week, because mpg will drop to 17. Stupid people make me go faster, so I can get away from them. Yeah that's it, sure it's their fault not the sound of the car that drives me to speed. :lol:

With 4500 miles on #5103 I get 18-19 in town, when I am heavy with the right foot 17 in town. I have not done a highway only check yet, but have gotten 23 combination, with more highway miles than city.

You guys are lucky. I get around 13 during the week with my commute. The one long trip I went on I got around 21 miles per gallon and that was around 70 mph. I don't really hot rod it all that much. I have noticed that I am starting to get better gas mileage as the car gets more miles on it.

justindal, If you normally get 13 mpg and you dont drive hard I think I would take it in to find out what's up. I was getting 18-19 mpg when mine was a month old and it has got better since. I dont beat mine but I do like to hit the go pedal every once and a while (leaving traffic lights, stop signs and getting on highways etc.). It just seems a little on the low side to me.

Yeah, I think I do need to take it in. Now the Service Engine Soon light is on. This is the second time it has come on. I know it's not the gas cap, because I always make sure it is tight. Maybe the gas cap itself is bad. However, my last tank of gas, I got about 18 mpg.

I got 25.9 on the I-5 down here to L.A. from Vancouver. Now, in the city I get more like 18-19.

The "Service Engine Soon" light has nothing to do with the fuel cap. In fact, there's a "CHECK FUEL CAP" (or something like that) light which should pop on if you've got a problem with your fuel cap.

My 25.2 included a blast at 120 as the odometer rolled over the 7000 mark plus numerous 80-90 runs. 75 is about the overall average which included the surface streets and residential areas.
