Hot dang I am jealous, I'll be trying to hit those numbers after a transmission swap, hope I can get there. In any case, about your above post: Does that mean the best thing to do it do look for a performance water injection mechanism? Is it possible that they are not set up in the way that will help with mileage or does it not matter? And if it does is there a way to tweak the thing into acting the way we want. Great explanation by the way, you know your stuff pretty solidly.

PS: Are you running this by any chance?

Has anyone ever used liquid electric tape?

no i just keep tire's inflated and i have a 92 civic vx with vtec-e for getting up hills. 87 hp is alittle rough, but it's a 2100lbs car so that makes a diffrent. i also have a front lip that help deflects wind.

i need to reduce my wieght 245- 200 and drop the car 100lbs and i should get another 1mpg.

Can you identify the wires in my o2 sensor?

That sounds pretty scary for me, as an mpg guy. Mehbe I'll ask my cousin, he boosts to 20 or 25 I think, but he doesn't use nos...

No more diesels in California

I'll serve this file for a little while so everyone can download it. This is a step by step for creating one of these things. The author does not tell you how much of a gain you get in terms of mpg though.
