7.3 mpg!!

Ok so I have PHP tunes and I run in my 80hp daily driver tune. Going to get a cold air intake and a 4in exhaust just wondering what kind of mpg I can expect. With those mods

Re: 7.3 mpg!!

Fuel milage is 100% dependent on you the driver. You might get 13, you might get 18

Ding Ding we have a winner. If you drive like a pissed off 16 year old. You might not get the best mpg. But if you go easy with the skinny petal you can get upwards of 17-20 mpg.

Re: 7.3 mpg!!

My fuel mileage with the 80hp daily drive went too just over 16mpg, I don't pound on the truck. I did try the 100hp performance and got over 16 1/2mpg, so the idea of more power and fuel mileage I licky

Re: 7.3 mpg!!

Besides how hard you stomp the skinny pedal, speed is probably the biggest killer, at 70 on fairly flat terrain I get 18, at 75 I get 16.5, that and aerodynamics are big one on a long trip ill bring my mirrors in and I sweat its good for another 1 mpg

Re: 7.3 mpg!!

Seeing as the OP has stock split shots, I would think a little less mpg than the guys with singles. Like 17 driving right.
