12mpg, oxygen sensor 4 days late in shipment. Sure, I take off hard and have less than half tread on high end tires I bought in Nov 2004. I only cruise @ 1200- 2000 rpm. sonomaxr2 or whatever gets 32mpg. Bastad.

I'm worried about economy. I'm spending over $40 to fill my tank up all the way and getting 29 MPG average. Once I do city driving my average goes down to around 26 though. :( i hate having to drive 60 miles a day. this is going to cost me like $300 a month and I only make 800-1,000 a month. :(

I want to know you're ways. BTW- I know you don't drive you're car the way you did at MAG. You granny it, I know you do. Do you keep it below 2000 rpm? I've tried keeping it below 2500rpm, then I saw a piped out 1994 Mustang GT. That ended that. Had to hit 4000rpm for that, haha.
