I was down to about 17.5 mpg (calculated at the pump and the trip odometer) for mainly highway at 65 mph. I have a 3.73 rear end and a manual trans. I replaced my ebpv tube and saw about a 1 mpg gain in mileage but I've only put one tank through it since the fix. I do notice that the ebpv is not actuating driving since the fix. I used to hear it when I was holding a constant speed or decelerating before I replaced the tube.

Well blue screw in the fall i drove from Abbotsford to Quesnel and got 22.6 Can MPG. Best ever. But i was really trying to see what kind of mileage i could get. rarely went over 1700rpm. I have a canopy and was basicly unloaded. 3.73 gears. In town i don`t really bother to figure out mileage. I love having the capeability to get that good of mileage if i want. Oh, i filled up in Abby then filled up in Quesnel, then did the math. Roy

The best I have ever seen is 17.5 mpg, empty, with cruise set at 70 mph on the interstate. Towing my 32' 5th wheel I have seen 13 mpg, but usually is just over 12 mpg keeping it at about 60 mph.

24-26? I was born and raised in south la, but didnt know i was from missouri, cuz you gonna have to show me that one.

Anyway... I drive 100 miles everyday, 65 miles interstate, 35 miles city/rural highway mix, 500 miles a week, for 4 yrs now.

Before mods in my sig.....
75 mph gets 15 mpg
70 mph gets 16 mpg
65 mph gets a consistent 17-17.5

After mods, and 80e, since christmas basically...
75 mph gets 17
70 mph gets 18
65 mph gets 20.8 for 4 tanks now


These are all hand calculated after every fill up. I havent towed anything significant yet since mods, , but before, it didnt matter if i was pulling 10,000# or 1000# the mileage was 12. I think there is a sensor that connects to the hitch so that when a trailer is hooked up the mileage always dropped to about 12 no matter the load. There are things that can be done to increase the milage, but the best one is to lighten up on the go pedal.

CPS, would you be using Imperial Gallons, 4.546, ltrs or US gallons, 3.785.. ltrs?
I have a 137 litre tank and get about 21 to 22 miles per Imp Gal. For the US freinds that 5 us qts for 1 imperial gallon.
Sometimes the calculations are neary mind boggling with all the possible conversions.
