Using premium only made minor differences in my mpg, and hurt the wallet more than it was worth. Try the ecu reset, and drive REALLY easy. Point the tach at 2k RPM's and keep it there until youve reached speed (unless youre going faster than about 55 or 60). Also try to coast AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. I know it may seem like a negligible difference at first, but after you start doing it consistently you can gain 1-2mpg. Mine used to be at about 9 or 10 mpg, i did the above and now im consistently at 13+ during city driving.BigJ said:Clean air filter or cai, reset ecu, check tire pressure, use premium, take it easy on the right pedal, might be the heavier wheels even though you said it was the same before, different tire size? time to replace oxygen sensors?? Hope this might help.
Holy cow. I usually manage 13-14 city and highway is around 18 if i go 75 mph but I've gotten 19.5 if I stay around 65 mph.Vector said:Check for a large weight in your right shoe. My truck gets around the same milage you are getting. 8 city 12 highway if I am lucky.

here in Katy (west of Houston) I live 1.1 miles south of Interstate 10 and there are at least 7 stop lights in that distance and on most days it takes 10 - 15 minutes to go that same distance. this is a street that is 3 travel lanes wide in each direction!!! So 12 mpg makes me happy.
I usually give enough throttle so that shifts are between 2500 and 3000 rpm if there's not some dang civic in front of me!!:evillaugh so usually see 10 in town but can't resist the sound of that cherry bomb!! :clap:
