Anybody Here Talk MPG?

I think MPG is just a lightly explored corner of the performance envelope.

Its talked about a bunch. In the pursuit of power there are often mpg gains if you can just slow down a bit and keep your foot out of it. The more efficiently an engine can make power the less you need to mash the pedal. I see in your signature that you already get the idea and have upgraded the air filter and the exhaust. Adding a processor enhancement can yield a few extra. But for some the gains balance out the loss from when they race someone.

I talk MPG every time I fill up. It usually contains a few curse words and me swearing I won't mash so hard on the pedal anymore.
