    Have you done basic tunes up, like change your air filter, change your fuel filter etc.?

    yeah, tune up should be first at those miles if you're not sure of it's history. Are the exhaust tips sooted up?

    How many gallons do you put in when you fill it? If you are only putting in 10-12 and getting 180 miles, that is about right. If it is almost all city driving, that is what you can expect. In this cold weather here right now, I am getting 15-16 MPG, almost all city, work is a 5.3 mile one way drive. In summer I get 225 miles and put in almost 14 gallons. I have been getting over 28 MPG highway since my headers.

    yes i usually fill it up with 13 gallons and i get about 170 on it so thats about 13 mpg, i'd like to get more out of it since it is my daily driver for now, im thinking of getting the loudmouth1 since ive heard good feedback from it, and with my tax return im probably going to get some new headers so any suggestions with those? thanks

    Fill tank. Reset trip. Drive. Refill tank. Divide number of miles driven by gallons added. Simple. Then when you make a shitty gas milaege post you can put your actual milaege in the info.
