I'd probably sell my ssei (well, maybe not) if I got that on half a tank. I'm ticked when I only get 300.

I gotta ask....did you take off the SC? How can you get that mileage and ever put your foot on it? If you do put your foot on it occaisionally, please send your O2 sensor to me...we need to run some tests on that baby.

at least twice a week on my way to work, I do a WOT straight up to 100 mph. Half way in between my commute, there is a stop sign in the middle of nowhere. The SC is still there, at least my boost gauge pegs. Nate and Gordy saw my gas gauge sitting at half with 350 on the trip.

I'll make a standing offer for an official BC watcher, he or she can fill, ride for 300 miles, and fill.

I'm not saying I don't believe it. I'm saying it'* the one in millions car. And now that you say you WOT often enough it does get harder to believe...
