In the summer when i drive the car i fill it up every other day.Thats if i drive it every day.I dont really care about gas mileage i want power not economy.</P>


I couldnt get good gas mileage if i wanted to with the C4 and a set of 3.73's at 65 im doing 3,000 rpm so as you can probably tell i can almost watch my gas gauge move.LOL</P>

Do you just tune your car to get good mileage and sacrafice a little power? Or does one come with the other using the tweecer?

Ive got a 5 speed with 3.73s and get about the same rpm at 85, maybe a bit higher. I still don't get very good mileage. Tweecer calls my name....

it probably has something to do with your emissions package. I noticed that the cars with the crappy mileage are from Cali where smog control is an issue.</P>
