    I posted about 20 earlier and that was with a generic fuel system cleaner. I added the slick 50 cleaner and i sware it has made a difference in smoothness. unsure of any mpg gains though.

    Smile Bad in city and great on highway...Supercharged

    I take it easy around town and usually can't get 14 mpg. On a trip I can get about 27 to 32 mpg on the highway. June was the last time I broke 30 plus. I have probably hit 30 or more around 15 to 20 times. My highway mileage didn't change much w/the supercharger, but the city seems lower.

    I usually average between 22-24 mpg with an even mix of city and highway driving and an occasional run-up through the gears.

    I avged 24mpg with 75% hwy and 25% city. I always tried to get into 6th as quickly as possible on the highway and backroads if it was level enough. You can get 29-30mpg on the highway if you live in a flat area, I just have a lot of hills.

    I get 25 mpg or better on the highway (I do a lot of that). Around town it drops to a DISMAL 13 to 15 mpg. This is with all the mods listed below.

    With full bolt-ons...

    I get about 16 mpg in the city, if I'm not too heavy on the gas.

    On my last trip to LA, thanks to that 6th gear, I guess I was making about
    23-25 mpg. I got almost double what I usually get driving in the city.

    It works really well with 4.10's, the 1-3-5 shift. I tried 2-4-6 shifting, but the first two gears in the T-56 for our cars are kinda tall, even with 4.10's. The only thing I don't like about driving with "some sense" is that I can't hear the vicious exhaust note below 3K rpm. It's like I am running around in a GT with a catless h-pipe and flows. Above 3K is where the exhaust note will make you pitch a tent, and panties start drippin' . Reach over there and rub on it, hell, it's like you stuck your hand in a mayo jar. haha
