    You could try switching your pulley back to stock and see what you get?

    Highway MPG is right at 16-18MPG with the modifications listed in my sig. 3.08's by the way.

    New O2's and a few other things, and hopefully I'll gain some more MPG.

    I should have said I have. I still have the bad mileage. But the car was pretty packed from the shootout so Ill double check with the car empty.

    I take it this is with the '95? Honestly...you have guys getting amazing gas mileage, and I can keep my foot out of the gas pedal and I get crappy gas mileage.

    Only issue I have is a very annoying surging I get everyonce in awhile.

    I get about 12 mpg driving my car around. Not exactly babying it, just doing what I do. I notice on highway drives it would get at least 20 if I tracked it I bet.

    I opened this poll on 08-26-2005 and it has done well . Just as I expected most people are getting 21mpg and under, just as I am, although on a long trip I'll get up to 23mpg.


    Don't crash into a tree just to avoid a skunk!

    My red 90 5 speed got 29 mpg with a CAI and K&N filter setup as being the only real changes to the engine. Of course I babied her and didn't put my foot through the firewall either.
    As for my titanium SC, I brought her back from Long Island to Albany with less than a 1/4 tank of gas and didn't even have to stop and put gas in her. Oh..wait...that's right, I was towing her back on a dolley!
    Seriously though, my red SC gets awesome gas mileage and gets way better mileage than my wife's '03 Monte Carlo SS. I'm more than happy with my mileage with this car. I only hope the titanium SC gets comparable mileage when she's running...
