Fuel Mileage after mods.

I had another thread about putting on a full catback, CAI and ported throttle body on about three weeks ago on my 2010 SS/RS standard.
After about three full tanks of gas I think I can safely say now that I have picked up about 2+ mpg overall average.
I averaged about 21.5 over the past year and now my average is running about 24.6. I also calculate by hand, but they numbers have consistently been close enough that I don't do it all the time.
Pretty freaking cool if you ask me. I want my "gas guzzler" tax back.
I saw 27.7 on the first leg of a 100 mile loop to pick up the granddaughter, the overall of the 100 mile stint was 26.5.

Awesome....

There wasn't a gas guzzler tax on the 2010 SS's. I get 24.5/mpg on a trip with an E-Force S/C. 546/rwhp
