Hey guys, this thread has inspired me, so far i'm averaging 11L/100km with mostly city driving and a moderately heavy foot at times. I've been using nothing but Shell Bronze(87) in the tank for the past 2000 km. The issue is the Bronze has 10% ethanol. So I will tank up with some shell V-power (super high quality 91 octane, pure gas no ethanol) and see if I can get an improvement over a few tanks. I'm hoping a drop to 9 so I can recoup the tremendous costs of canadian 91 octane lol.

Unfortunately all on E10 gas. I would love to try pure gas but the only place I know of is a small gas station that caters to the boating community and isn't convenient for me to get to.

Thats great ... just shows then how impressive your numbers really are and that even better is obtainable on G100 if it can be found !!

Default General Questions

Hello gents. Just picked myself up a 07 GT, and looking for some inforamtion.

Im Kinda new to the Bama, and brenspeed chips, would anyone be so kind as to explain the difference between the two, and possibly the difference between the settings?

The previous owner hooked my up with the latest updates, however i feel i would be better served to be fully aware of what i am dealing with and how to get better performance out of my newly found joy!

Thanks Gents

You are in the wrong section of the forum actually - this one is specific to the 3.7L V6.

But as far as the "chips" - the new Mustangs no longer using chips for tuning. You get a handheld tuner, with SCT being the most common and most widely used by the tuners.

If I used 89 octane with my 87 octane hybrid tune could this improve my mpg or would it mess my tune up.
Would very much like to hear any info. thank you

You can always go to a higher octane with no problems - and with the 2014 you have the computer will make some adjustments using the knock sensors. But you won't get the most power out of it without a tune.

It won't improve your MPG either.
