    Insurance would be cheaper for me to have an LS1 car then the car I have....and the mileage is about the same. I only get about 22mpg.

    I have no clue the reasoning, but I beat on my car like from the moment i jump in it to the moment i jump out of it.

    You gotta figure I'm making over 400 horse, so the power has to come from some amount of gas. I'm using 880cc injectors so they can really drink when they want to....

    yeah, but the stock SS supercharged doesn't get great milage for a 4 cyl. and its got 205hp, don't know maybe its got some crazy comp. ratio or something

    normally stock boosted cars are tuned VERY conservatively from the factory....IE 9:1 AFR's and that WILL consume gas quickly.

    When I was just bolt ons with my car and had it tuned for more power I was getting 27ish mpg.

    it's all a matter of how hard you have to push your car to get it to move...Power To Weight ratio, Torque and such... us LS1 car owners barely have to give it any gas and the thing will move under normal driving situations... I myself never make it over 1700rpms on a normal drive.... where as a 4Cil in a boosted aplication with it's low compression and tq has to push alot harder to get moving and therefore spends more gas under normal driving... 3000+lbs Evo... with a 2.0L... still needs to get up to 3k rpms or more to get moving in the normal flow of traffic...

    at least that's my theory about the whole thing...

    would explain my 11 to 12 mpg out of my 5.9l dodge, only 245hp and like 4500lbs, damn thing just chugs gas down, not as bad as my dads 8.1L 3/4 chevy though, that thing is thirsty

    yeah 3000rpm is about right on the money. At 3000rpm in 5th gear I'm doing about 70.

    cause sometimes a 6 speed can actually be a dissadvantage... case and point... the crappy top end of a Subaru STi...6-speed... gears are too close... only made for acceleration...not top end...

    Evo has both 5 speed and 6 speed. The MR has a 6, the rest have a 5.....actually by most accounts the 5 speed is better.
