Your car seems to have done great, 40 MPG with a driver hitting it hard is impressive. I will have to hand my car off to my brother for a few days and see what happens. Not sure he would want to give up his Civic for that long though .

I'm not sure why with the EGR unplugged it seemed to get better mileage. I will unplug it again to test it. Overall I think its bad for the emissions system and could cause long term reliability issues. More data coming next tuesday. Yes I thought the mileage was respectable too.

lol got that covered too, cat is off one car and i havent noticed a difference in the others. my truck has its egr totally gone(made a plate out of steel to block the opening, will cause a major vacum leak if not) and before i couldnt get better than 25 now im getting 29.4 was my last fillup. this is with a vacum controled egr(same as theyve had since like 1974), maybe the modern electronically ones seems to help. but id curious to know lovemysan, so please test away!
