Hi, saw GasSavers mentioned on grassrootsmotorsports.com and joined up. I have an '04 Si. Anyone on here with the same model? The gearing(5th gear is half of the speed) is pretty low for mileage but I am getting around 35-36 mpg overall (rated at 26-28) and never drive on the highway and don't have too many lights to deal with and most speeds are at 40-50 mph. I guess about 1 light per every 2 miles. A lot of short runs.
So far I have:
48 psi tires(currently playing with 55)
gutted interior of 250 lbs.
5-20 Redline oil
Shift at 2k, coast, etc.
Although it hurts mpg, I never use ac and drive with the windows and sunroof open. Will be removing wipers(live in desert) and roof antenna soon. I will need new tires (original 205/55/16s, 37k) in a few thousand miles but want good cornering along with improved mpg (I know, it's a compromise).
Thanks for having me and any suggestions are appreciated.
