I don't see how adding extra weight to the car increases mpg. I usually put 4-7 gallons in for city driving where there's a gas station on every corner. Also, I have removed the heavy rear seats since I don't use them.I
Fill gas tank to top at every fill up
Fill gas tank before light comes on
With a MPG meter in the car, I've noticed a few good things to remember.I have read several posts on here on things done to their E that allowed them to get better gas mileage and power. Is the K&N typhoon kit a good one or is should I look into a different exhaust setup?
lols ..........i've done extensive logging of my gas mileage:
Accelerating nice and slowly (no revving past 2.5k)
fill gas tank to top at every fill up
fill gas tank before light comes on
use gunk fuel system cleaner every so often (every 5k miles or so)
driving on the highway at less than 65mph
dry humping/ making out with the gf in the back with the heat on
idling for long periods of time
flooring the pedal
driving over 65mph on the highway (driving 200 miles at 65mph vs 200 miles at 85mph is a significant gas difference)
city driving for extended periods of time
in general, when i am "good", i have seen myself get about 20.5mpg, and when i am "bad", i have seen the element get about 14mpg.
