Bolt ons and gas mileage?
 
Just curious.

Should my milage have gotten better with bolt ons?

I have CAI intake
BBK long tube headers with hi flow cats
MRT 2
Trifecta tune.

And I am driving VERY VERY lightly not full throttle AT ALL... under 2k rpms no matter what (SO SLOW) City driving. But like I said... very very flow start (people on bikes get ahead of me quicker) And city driving is 50 km (or 30 miles an hour) I never drive in traffic hour aswell... mostly stopping at red lights.

And I am getting 18 miles to the gallon... Is this normal with boltons or is something wrong?

did you try to reset the gas mileage meter after all of those modz done?
mines was always at 17-18mpg and then i reset it and it shows me the correct mpg

Idk man. I've had an injen CAi, tune and axle back and was getting great MPGs. I installed bbk long tubes and now MPGs went down the drain. I sent Vince a datalog but he hasn't gotten back to me. Idk what the deal is. Hopefully it's something in the tune. I've checked everything. No CEL

How long ago did you datalog?

I sent my datalog 10 days ago and nothing yet about it.

I remember I sent him a log (this was at the start of the tune craze when everything first came out ) and waited a couple months thinking he was just overloaded...nope he just missed my email

My gas mileage was bad (to me) around 20-21 but once I felt my car re learned everything, I get about 23-24 in the city now. Best I've gotten on the highway was about 30.5 with full bolt ons

:word:

I have done 25 mile tests numerous times on the way to work in the morning. Always setting the cruise at 70 MPH. I have seen 30 - 33 + MPG every time.

Man reading all this makes me feel like a complete dick of a driver -_-.. i average 16.2 mpg overall, and only 19 on the highway lol.. I bought the car to enjoy it, it is what it is.

Thing is, you probably drive fast and pull 0-60 a ton

I am driving like a granny just to see the milager I get and I am lucky to get 18 mpg.... something is wrong from the looks of it on my end.

htoniv 05-20-2013 01:11 AM

I average 20 aswell... id say mine is 85% highway and 10% local and 5% traffic :(

Mvp_Me 05-20-2013 01:22 AM

Car must be running rich as hell, thats all i can come up with. whenever vince gets back to you he can look at the log and lean it out if thats the main problem.
