as for the mileage, with the price it just seems fishy with only 33k.

as for the aftermarket, i want to just mod my car but im scared to boost it with the n/a engine... its got higher compression than a */c motor. as for turboing it according to the zzp site i dont think it will work with my exhaust... thoughts?

thats bs.... as long as you dont beat the hell out of them the 3.8 */c will get 20mpg city and atleast 30 hwy.

im avging 27mpg myself with 2 bad wheelbearings and i set my cruise on 80-85 on the 13 mile daily drive each way. and most of my driving is light to light apart from those 26 miles/day.

That mileage is about right I'd say. It'* what I remember getting on the highway. I've never seen 30mpg on the highway since I owned my car. Of course, I also need to do a tuneup and clean the fuel system too. First thing on the list when I get back.

How do you know? I flew at night and I didn't get too see a lot. Yeah it was a boring 3 hour flight.

Anyway. I worked on this today. Oil and filter change, and spark plugs, wires , air filter and swapped on a set of snow tires that it had.
