Haha... you think intake and exhaust saves gas. That'* funny. You don't have the same problems most of us do.

Theory: Once you mod...you should use the mods.
Result: More horsepower more often, less fuel economy
Result2: Less fuel in tank..."Where'd it go"

Well I did get as low as 13.

I still have fun. I need that speed limiter removed cause the fun ends fast.

Now were those highway miles or city miles. Because my 1992 Bonneville will get about 20 in the city and that is just with a muffler and high flow cat.

Nice milage. I get about the same on the highway. My best is 33. It'* amazing how efficient these motors can be. It barely has to breathe to move the car.

I know its such a unexciting topic but my last car was a Suzuki esteem and that thing got about 32 miles a gallon. The nice thing was it can get 25-30 all day, stop and go or freeway, but the car was too small and weak and just not me.

I didnt want it anymore and I got my Bonneville because it was such a great deal. Its really nice to get 30+ on such a big car on the freeway.

Stop and go traffic does chug gas though. Thats the only thing I miss about an econo car.
