    I'm averaging 14-16 miles to the gallon with the 4.11 gears and 403ci motor. I've lost 70 overall miles from a stock LS1 and 3.42 gears, but good news is, those gears are fun as hell to drive I actually need to use 6th gear on all roads, before I only got into 6th is on Interstate (70mph <).

    Having a 14 gal tank sucks

    Plugged my port for HVAC on the back of my FAST 102, self tapping screw and rtv sealant on the threads worked like a charm.

    Did some minor tuning to lean my fuel mixture down a little. Also took it out for my monthly drive with the t-tops off. Much better by this time of year in Iowa as it was mid 60s but good chance of snow by tomorrow night.

    When you say you have a 14 gallon tank, you are meaning the amount before the gage starts showing empty, right?

    A loss of 5 mpg seems more than I though you would have (70/14), is it the combination of gears and (long stroke) displacement that doing that to you?

    What did you do with your Trans Am today?

    98's have a 14 gal steel tank where as the 99 < have 15 gal plastic.


    Your right in thinking that the stroke plus going from 28lb to 42 lb injectors plus the gear ratio.

    Hmmm. I thought ours had a 16 gallon tank, but I never checked or looked up the spec. No matter what, I never let the needle drop below a quarter tank despite my right foot on the loud pedal.

    02 TransAm Ramair WS6

    Uncovered and took it out last night with the wife to get frozen yogurt. When I got back, I checked the weather for the next day and it looked like a T/A to work kinda day so I left it uncovered. Leaving at 5:45 in the AM, I forget how loud it is !!! .... even just trying to 'sneak' out of the neighbor-hood. Definitely the fastest car on I-95 this morning. I love this stuff !!! --- BTW, I checked the owners manual on my '02. Fuel capacity is 16.8 gals. Sadly I'm at the .8 level right now .. gotta get it as soon as leave work. ( I know,, My bad ).

    I was certain my 2000 was 16.

    I get 19mpg driving it wild, and 22 calm and 6th gear a lot. If that isnt drastic then my wild must be quite mild .
