Because of the current gas prices I'm being, more or less, forced to stop driving Grandma'* Revenge everyday to school (20 min. drive) .
But not all hope is lost! I GET TO DRIVE THE AEROSTAR! YAY! Of course, if you want to, you can see the Ford Aerostar on my cardomain site. I am getting quite a bit of "attention" for driving the Aerostar at my school . Hopefully by December I'll start driving my car again.
Well thats the killer! I only get 18 mpg. around town TOPS if i drive granny style . The aerostar, around town, gets easly 20mpg !? And to add on to that yes, it also has to do with having to may for premium.
odd.... i get like 21-22 mpg driving long distances on backroads with the tach never dropping below 2500 or so. and our aerostar eats o2 sensors like candy and is problem missin some so it gets like 15 or 16 mpg. if i get bonnie out on the Interstate shell do 28-29 mpg. all of this is with cheap mans gasoline good ol 87

Superchargers require 91 or higher because they run a higher compression ratio. Therefore if you run it with 87 you knock, and lose A LOT OF POWER, enough to be as slow as a Naturally aspirated engine in some cases.
