I couldn't believe it...the little bitch kept going and going and going...what great gas mileage I have been getting. Mobil 1, cruise control on major highways, easy shifting (under 4k RPM), and 94 octane gas.

:eek:

I find I get best gas milage going between 50-60 mph, but that is so damn slow. I usually cruise around 80 on the highway.
I set cruise control at 72 every morning on the way to work. :D

Isn't it scary?

I've noticed better mileage too but have not monitored it closely. If you're getting that good mileage you must be going 55 on the freeway. Isn't that kind of scary? :p

Dear jesus. Hook us up with info on how you accomplished that?!?!

That would make the range of our 17.5 gallon tanks... 4375 miles! :eek:

Damn Wino...that's some good mileage! You don't have boost do you?? The best I made was with my old S/C setup, I got between 20-25mpg just doing stop and go traffic. Got a little worse when I started boosting though...like 10mpg! :lol:

Inochi3, you get LESS miles with SRT??

it is not suppose to get MORE miles??

How do you find SRT intake? does it increase high-end power?

i like the torque of the car until ~4000, after it doesn't seems to breath well, and i'm looking to fix that: i tought that SRT could help me

thanks in advance

I get better gas mileage because of the SRT intake. Call Swift Racing Technologies if you would like to get one. Also, Carson Toyota Sells them.
