How the heck do I get that MPG? I'm jealous.

Easy to get that mileage with a good tuneup. I get that on both of my L67'* cruising at 75-80.

Third Tank

311 Miles on 12.9 gallons for roughly 29 Mpg

This was all done on 93 Octane.. The car ran great with the ported lower and was responsive in almost all conditions.. Going through the hills and mountains I never had to punch it to the floor like a raped ape.. Just had to hit 3rd gear and go... I am more than pleased with the Ported lower intake...

And I didn't go easy on the car either... Bill Boost, Bob and Pat all heard the noise... LMAO

Total miles driven 1326, all in a days work

Good to be here... and great weather too
uh 311 divided by 12.9 = 24mpg.......

Jim you need to get your but down to NEBF!!!! Go leave now... Tell your boss you quit
Actually I hope Jim can make it. He is the reason I joined the club.
Really?! Thats awesome! I had no idea!

This year is kinda hard to make it down there, new job, Angie is in school for the summer term (next year at this time she is off) so it might be easier to come down.

Keep Mick from behind the wheel.
Tell ya what Mr. Boosty, Sir, when we drive up, Mick will drive as long as he can with the cruise control on, then we'll see what mileage we get.
Speaking of Mick'* driving, he desperatly wants to race the Bonne........ What'* the weather like in Enfield Ct. on race day Bill cause I certainly don't think Hell Will Freeze over?

I suspected it from his 'busy' comment also. I kept waiting to see him post from Boosty'* IP address.

And there we have it. Jim.....stay OUT of the green bottle this time.
