Looks like ya had fun all right my N* got 14.6 last fillup @93 octane and I thought my mileage sucked. It looks like boosted V6 is worse than V8 mileage.

Whoa. Thank god I don't have a L67. I average 22-23 mpg IN town. Yeah baby, on the highway, I have a speeding habit which makes my mpg be 25-26. Not shabby compared to harofreak
