LB7 Fuel Mileage

So what kind of fuel mileage is eveyone getting out of there LB7.

I run my Diablo Sport on Economy and around town 13.5-15. Interstate 18-19.
In March I took a long trip with no tune and got 19.5.

I'd say I get right around the same as you do. It usually averages out to between 16-17 at every fill-up. Dang heavy right foot and 500rwhp will do that.

I average about 20-21 when I run the biggest tune, but always better than 18. Just recently I went from a 285 M/T to a 315 A/T and there was no change at all. That is hand calculated, I don't have one of those fancy trucks.

You do NOT want to use the DIC to calculate mileage.

I live in the gutter... between my mom and the U.S. Navy I have become a "well rounded person". For some reason the wife gets upset when I act like a freak, so I get it all out on TDG!
