MPG after hot rod cams install
Before I get flamed, I realize that cams will lower MPG, and I didn't buy a Mustang to get great gas mileage, but hear me out:
My car is a DD, and I mostly drive just to work & back - which is a VERY short commute with nothing but stop & go traffic (no highway). Before the cams, I was averaging about 16-17 mpg, driving conservatively, shifting around 2.5k rpm on most shifts.
I haven't changed the way I drive with the cams, other than the fact that I have to give it just a little bit more gas off the line. I've gone from 16-17 mpg to 12.5 to 13...
Mods are C&L intake, 93R Bama tune, 3.55 gears, and FRPP hot rod cams. I would've assumed a slight drop, but going from around 17 to under 13 seems like a huge drop. I've basically gone from getting over 200 miles on a tank to around 125-150. I was expecting about ~14 to 15 mpg from some of the other threads I came across.
Anybody experiencing about the same mpg with these cams? Could the more aggressive 93R tune have anything to do with it?
