You have to decide what techniques you want to use or not. Labels like "legitimate" are kind of subjective. There's a range of techniques at your disposal, some are more involved than others, and not all are appropriate for your vehicle, locale or traffic conditions.

I don't think any of the figures on this board are "inflated" - they're real consumption figures, obtained by people employing different mods & techniques behind the wheel.

There's a driving primer here with Driving With Load and Pulse and Glide mentioned here:

Pulse and Glide:

Also a glossary here:

I Agree. Don't bring a knife to a gun fight

Well... In fairness, I've noticed a bias towards hybrids and against almost everything else on certain forums. And most of the examples of high mpg tend to involve ideal conditions and low speeds, so, take it as you will.

Don't know about the other sites. Look at the top 10 here you have to have over 50 MPG to make it. That's figured on tanks not segments and most of the cars are daily drivers so they can't have ideal conditions for 400 miles or more. Yes the slower the speed the better the mileage but a lot times this involves driving the posted speed limit . I'm not putting up big numbers but I'm getting better mileage now then I was before and that's why I'm here.

Well, back on topic here. XFI, you should put the car in the "parts car" catergory on ebay it might gain more interest.

Every time I do that, Ebay finds a reason to cancel my auction and tells me to place it in the regular car/truck section. They think that I am trying to circumvent fees.

By the way...SOLD

Resurrecting this thread to ask a question:

You say the XFi final drive is 3.79, but I've read on teamswift that it's 3.89.

Can you say where your info came from?

My info came from the 1994 Factory Service Manual (published 6/93) page 0a-5. Love when I can back my statements...not often though.

XFi standard axle ratio 3.79:1
Base Model standard axle ratio 3.95:1
Automatic optional axle ratio 4.10:1
