I had to stop at the mom and pop gas station in North Carolina in the middle of nowhere... The Check Gages chime was driving me insane...( Got stuck in some royally F'd up roadwork )... Tank took 17.2 gallons of bad gas... Next 300 miles was gutless untill I got to the BP and refueled with 93...

My rule of thum anymore.... 400-425 and stop for fuel

L36 with a 3.06 ratio BTW

Math says thats 28.48 mpg... Not bad for being stuck in traffic for a couple of hours...

The trip back pulled down a nice 32mpg, Didn't get caught in roadwork...LMAO

Wow that'* good! The highest I've gotten was 25 mpg and the lowest I've gotten was 14.5 mpg. I was driving normally, being gentle when taking off and this is what I get. but don't worry, my CAI is supposed to come in today so that should give me better mpg. Good, I need any add'tl mpg.
