Default whats your mpg

If i did it correctly i get like 6.6 mpg. I have full bolt ons, 4:10s and a high stall torque converter everybody says the torque converter makes a difference but i dont see a difference since its been installed

You probably didnt do it correctly, or you have something majorly wrong. If it were only 6.6 you could probably watch the gauge go down with acceleration. Last I checked I got 24 mixed driving.

I doubt you did it right. 6.6 mpg you would be out of gas in 100 miles. Anyways, I average 21-22 mpg according the app I have on my ipod which logs total miles and total gallons that go into the car. I have 4.30s and do a mix of city and highway driving.
