You guys should be able to pull off a 30 MPG trip... 28 is very good tho... The rating for the 92'* is 18 cty and 28 hwy.... Most will do a couple MPG'* better than the rating tho...

I agree completely. Both of my cars will beat 30 if I can keep my foot out of it. The 93 has broken 30, the 95 has come very close.

Yep... I pulled off a 31 in the 91... And I have still never said how fast I was actually going... Lets just say I didn't keep my foot out of it, and the milage was still good...

I have never taken the 91 on another trip... Maybe I'll drive the 91 on the next trip and see what it does... I'll bet 32 or 33 if I can just go 75mph...

If I set the cruise at 73 on the HUD....I've gotten about 37 MPG I think it figured out to be.

the tank prior to the cam sensor was 16.789 mpg and i havent gone through a tank yet and it has been bout a week now and 200 miles to the tank
so i believe this 120 project actually helped my gas milage
