Default Big thanks to Braineack - 28MPG

The latest tune shared over a month ago was driven consistantly over the last two weeks in stop/go traffic, mix of highway, city, and country roads for over 3 tankfulls. I'm averageing 28.1mpg!

VERY happy with the results of the tune and my "logging/correcting" over the period of 3 hours during commutes!

Do you know the highway mileage?

I had me and a passenger, with a full trunk of stuff and netted 35mpg on the highway back from the tail of the dragon.

City is a little worse, high 20's because i drive like Hustler.

Yup, Scott, It wasn't even posted "forsale" anywhere. Friend of mine was looking for a solid daily driver "fun car" for his girlfriend. Asked if I knew any 2000-2005 Miatas and I said "Hell you guys should come check mine out. Been thinking about scaling down my collection of cars from 6 to 4 again".

They came, they drove, they handed me an envelope with cash, and it went with them to Harrisonburg, Va.

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

Was a fun little car combined with the Flyin' Miata and megasquirt made it that much funner.

You guys have fun and be safe!
Mike

Well you know, I was affraid that Curly would find my mother in her nursing home and damage his car trying to run her over... Back to the world of Porsches and Datsuns. It's been (mostly) fun!

Enjoy guys!

These threads always puzzle me.

Last weekend, hardtop on, all highway driving like a reasonable person for 230 miles at 65-70 MPH, 30.4 MPG.

All other times, short trips on hilly local roads, 18-19 MPG. (And mind you, this is the non-turbo car. Bone-stock 1.6 engine.)

I've long since stopped caring.
