Default What setup are you daily driving?

Some of us have gone boost to no boost. Small boost to crazy. And all over the place.

Currently I am running low boost with bandaids. I'm getting 34 mpg and it will still run with stock stangs from a 45 punch.

I DD and track on the same maps. As of this afternoon that's 13.5psi, tapering to 12psi at redline.

naarleven, his odometer is optimistic like the rest of Miatas unless he is running a 3.9 or very over sized rear tires so don't sweat the 34mpg.

I daily drive my gutted car in the summer. 15psi, 300rwhp, I drive pretty aggressively and always end up ~27mpg combined city/highway.

In the cooler months my daily driver is also a turbo'd Miata. It was too hard to go from the Machine to stock power so I turbo'd it also. 14.5-15psi out to redline, currently 274k miles on motor/diff, 233rwhp. Pretty slow in comparison to the other. Again I have a pretty heavy foot and get 27mpg mixed city/highway.

That is 6 psi on stock 1.6L injectors on the highway. I still have the 4:30 gears in it. It gets 28 in town.

Like with anything. You start running it and it will drink some gas.

But when you step up to larger injectors it is hard to get over 27. My brothers SC car with the same setup got 28. As soon as we changed in the 1.8L injectors, some mileage dropped. Mabe we can get some back when we install the wb.
The beast with RC440 injectors got about the same as stock. With alot of tunning.
But it is insane fast.

But since I drive this back and forth to work for the sole purpose to save gas. I'm going to leave it as is. LOL

I got 29mpg on the highway during the last trip I took. That's a real 29mpg, using google maps for distance.

I just got 15mpg according to my odometer on the last tank, though. All around town. I drive like a *****.

I DD my '94 running between 10 and 13lbs of boost depending on the day (I'm still working on that)
Lately I've been getting 25mpg in combined driving, looks like I still need to do a little work on my fuel table.

My DD is a SAAB.

"In town" configuration for the Miata is 7-lbs, giving about 200whp and mid-20s for mileage; "playtime" setting is 11.5-lbs, 250(+)whp w/low-20s. - Same MSPnP map, wastegate toggled with an electric boost controller...

I drive like a raging ******* all the time in the green car and I've been able to put 6k miles on it in 6-months. I can get about 28mpg if I drive like a reasonable person...and managed to do that for 120-miles. Then I topped the tank off for the mpg calculation and did some 0-100mph runs because I'm the motherfucking man and get tons of bitches.

Oh, and I drive at 15psi 261whp/252wtq before the cops. Spinning the 225's in 4th never gets old. I couldn't imagine getting passed by base model vettes on the street.

I live in NY, everyone above doesn't even know what a city looks like why they quote city mileage I have no idea. I get 22mpg all city, real city, as in stop and go, traffic lights and stop signs.

Daily driver, year round. That is my car in the AV. Begi s4, mspnp, running 11-12psi on 550cc injectors. Typically 25-27mpg. Working on leaning VE's out of boost to up mileage a little. I put 15-18K miles on a year it.

Tein RA suspension is a little too harsh for my middle aged bones though. Looking to make a change there.
