3/4 left. Now that I think about it, maybe that's about right. It just seems like is going through gas pretty fast, but maybe its not.

I'l hook up the LC1 tomorrow and post my A/F's.

71200 to 71262 100 miles

I thought it was closer to 50 there and 50 back, but I guess not. I had to go outside and check the odometer to check myself. Ok so I guess 62 miles then on a 1/4 tank. So I should be getting roughly about 250 miles per tank then. Just seemed like I was watching the needle fall every exit I passed. Not as bad as I thought.

Now that sounds about right lol. You should be getting mid 20's with that.

I love the miata, as long as you don't go much past E, it's a 10 gallon tank from F to E, and mileage is just your tripometer/10. Assuming you reset it at full. Although I'd much rather have a slightly larger tank than easy to calculate mileage. F'ing 1/2 per 25 min session at the track

Have fun getting used to that Vash

Here is a very good website you should check out..
You record everything you need on it as far as ur mpg or amount of money you pay or so forth. It gives you a nice little purty graph of ur mpg every fuel up and so forth.
At first i thought it was stupid but its helpful.

Fuelly | Share and Compare Your MPG


Something on the side note there.. with the turbo installed and the waste gate disconnected, i'm getting the best mpg my car ever got.
