Its my personal best. First 150 was done on the HW. The rest is a mix of street and HW. With the stock ECU.

I think I have about 20 more miles before the gas light comes on. If im lucky. I'll see if i can take a picture tomorrow where it ends before i decide to pump.

I've never got over 260 with a chip. [down]

The only time I even came close to 350 was a road trip to Michigan. Otherwise, I'm right at 300, maybe 310 before the light comes on.

I've heard claims of 400+ and that's BS unless you have a tailwind like a hurricane...

My trip computer said that I would get 505 miles to the tank when I was cruising down the 101.

I think I made it to 366 before I pulled up to a station.

i find i save the most fuel when i keep it at constant 0 between vacumn and boost..
no basis to my 'finding'...but i got bored of my car and decided to practice my gas pedal skills... lol...

That's 13 mpg. You must be romping on that thing. I have a k04 and still get 20 mpg city.

I can still get about 350 to a tank w/ GIAC k03 sw and a test pipe. and that's pretty normal driving.

I'm serioulsy driving it (stock ecu) in the same fashion as before. I dunno. Maybe all those first HW miles helped me out.

Most of my chip readings were all City+HW.

Spark plugs...

Unless you have a lift fuel filter is a PITA. The part is about $25. Air filter is worth checking too.

I have a 12V and my tanks go about 350 highway and 250ish city. I have a pretty heavy foot in the city though.

In city with some highway driving I get 240-260 miles per tank.[drive] But when its entirely highway miles... my record is 428 miles to the tank, with a few drops left over. I have an APR chip, turbo back exhaust and some other goodies but I'm still running a stock k03 turbo.[:(]

Also.... Just out of curiousity, what kind of gas do you guys use? I ALWAYS fill up with V-Power from Shell. (93 octane)

I get about 240 all city. I hardly ever drive on the highway.

You know what's a bigger PITA? A fuel filter clogged and/or gone bad. I agree it is hard to change, but it's a worthwhile preventative maintenance issue.

Let me add that I have a K04 and my miles are 80% hwy, 20% city.

I always pump 91, I dont care for brand, but i think this one was off a Valero gas station.

I get around 26 mpg usually. When it's cold that drops down to about 23. When I go on trips I get around 30 mpg. There are a lot of mountains here though. There really isn't anything that's flat here.

Alright, light came on today at 309. I stopped and pumped at 313.6

Pumped 14 gallons

313.6/14 = 22.4 miles/gal

ehh

uhhh..... 190-200 tops haha. When I first got my car. What?! I had to test it out....[drive][:p]. And I think I got around that another time at a meet. We spent the day in miles and miles and miles of twisties.[:D] It's a chipped 1.8t with turbo back exhaust.

450 was my best, but even with the huge turbo I was able to get 350 pretty easy. My gst eclipse that is nearly 12 years old still gets 28 mpg.

I just came back from "da UP"( in michigan) and got 423 out of BP 93, Speed limits are 55 so we drove 65-70 by the time we got to green bay it was more fun to see what kinda miliage we could get out of her. so kept it about 75 or below.

k04 AFPR and a rich check engine light no cat [headbang] , snow tires, GIAC SW


It can be done if you drive like a grandma or just stay out of the boost. [drive]

when i filled up i figured 30.923 mpg [:D]

The key isn't the mph, it is keeping the car out of boost. The longer you can keep the car in vacuum(more vac the better)the better your mpg is going to be since the car runs at 14:1-15:1 during vacuum and much richer once you get into boost.
