Our government wants to take our money back and slow our economy. They want you to pay higher taxes, earn less income, and have more job growth overseas. Just like alcohol and tobacco vrs. pot, all about the income for the govt.
yep. thats exactly what the government wants to do.

way to thread jack btw.

lol i came on the forum just to complain about just filling up but saw this thread . . .

our cars are very sensitive to driving habits i've noticed. . . usually i cant keep the tach below 2k for long, but if i can i get pretty good mileage, sometimes last time i drove 75% grandpa and 25% ***** to the wall i got 20.1 mpg which was pretty sick. . ive seen as low as 10 though lol
the gas prices here in ny at a shell station are as follows
regular: $3.79
premium: $3.89
shell v-power (93): $4.00

Gas sucks.

$3.65 regular
$3.77 mid
$3.88 premium all at the shell by me.

It's so hard to drive conservative, it's my first summer with a stang, but I'm going to have to do it. I'm forced to sell my explorer as soon as this semester is over...i get better mileage in the mustang. I hate this.

To the OP: Get rid of the chip. With the mods you have listed, that chip is probably not doing anything other than costing you gas.
