That post was 9 months ago. I now have 159,200 miles and Again I find my self driving 115 miles a day, 90% freeway, keeping up with the fast lane and I don't baby it. Today I filled up and got 26.7 mpg, I average about 25. It has the 5 speed and I use regular 87 octane gas with no pinging at 14 lbs boost. I just changed the plugs and put in 5-30 blended oil. I tried 20-50 when I first got it and it didn't like it!
Do you have oversize tires? That could be the problem, you have to figure in a correction. Mine are old stock tires and I don't use any correction, but my wife's SC has a big correction.
I love passing people in their $30+k sports utes with my $600 dollar beater!
