Last week installed SLP load mouth on the car love the sound exactly what I wanted been running the car agressive and gas mileage has been about 13 mpg. The other day took the car to work new england highway so lots of hills had to travel about 30 miles I set the cruise control on 65 and rpms were at 1900 reset mpg after getting on highway and after 30 miles got 28.8 miles to the gal by computer readout, but the best news is I didn't mind the sound of the load mouths not bad about the same as stock but around town would never want them as a dd

i have gotten my car to read about 25+ MPG by hitting reset on the highway but i am very on the highway for more than 5 miles so it doesn't go any higher than that. I did however see a nice improvement in my fuel economy. My readout is now giving me 16 MPG around town which means a little over 14+ MPG realistically. But it was 13.5 MPG before. I think the crud they throw into the winter gasoline is finally disappearing and my mileage is liking it :D

I can't wait to see what my mileage would be after the CAI and UDP's i want to do :hihi:

That makes me more exited for my exhaust to come, I just ordered the Borla Stinger cat-back exhaust. I just hope its not too loud as my DD. I think I'll like it though I'm still a kid and it's summer.

13 m.p.g, I have never saw mine say that. 19 m.p.g once after a reset and got on it. 24 m.p.g not reseting it for a couple of weeks. I must not be driving mine right.

Come to NJ, i guarantee your mileage will drop 50% as soon as you cross the border :D

On a side note, i have burned approx 118 gallons of gas since Jan 1st. I use my comp to tell me how much i consume, so there is less for the Prius drivers :happydance:

Yeah, no doubt. Or how about waiting to go through the Lincoln tunnel to lower Manhattan... that's about 3/4 a tank right there.

Or maybe because of the Prius drivers there is more for you :wavey

I wish EVERYONE drove a Prius or scooter... maybe driving my Mustang around wouldn't be so expensive.

LOL, I was just reminded of the look I got from a Prius driver I was parked next to this weekend at a rest stop. He had a contemptible look at first when I got into my car (he was getting out of his) but once I started it up, it was as if he cowered back into his Prius until I pulled off... my friend almost pee'd himself he was laughing so hard as we pulled away :gringreen

Gas mileage is over rated :) The lower the number is the more fun your car is :)

The stingers aren't terribly loud. I think you'll be happy with them.
