It's the way you drive your car. Are u primarily driving in the city? Do you drive the car hard? Do you accelerate hard from stops all the time?

IDK, I get 300-350 miles on 93 octane & drive the ever loving piss out of my car.

OP, is your car a 2.0 A/T? Because they get crappy fuel mileage IMO.

It's more or less based on your MPG. I'm clocking high 19.x mpgs right now and getting around 300-315 on my range, 5 speed AT. Running 22 mpg, which I get in the summer, I get closer to 350.

Jeezus, take your boot out of it man. In the summer on 91 octane I run 400-450mi. per tank, and 370-400mi. in the winter (warm-up times + weight in trunk + anti-freeze in the gas)
And I drive fairly hard, so is there anything left of your tires?

:ugh: whyyyy??

I get anywhere from 360-380, if you want to feel good for a little while.... go fill up your tank... go home... disconnect your battery for 15 minutes or so until the memory resets and your range will be back up close to 400... also fix that wastegate :shake:

...I'm certain it is because of driving habits

I get 280 miles per tank on 87. A/T and I drive hard, but 80% of my driving is in rush hour interstate traffic. 17.8-19.2mpg

I can see 30mpg+ if I'm cruising steady at 60mph, but I never do that.

Mine has been sitting around 14L/100km this winter, so according to the converter I used I'm getting 16.8 MPG. I'm not driving the car hard at all. Last summer with my CBE on I was averaging around 12L/100km or 19.6 MPG.

Tightening the wastegate increases boost across the board, meaning even closed loop, or light load. Increased boost while cruising around town will cause the ECU to dump more fuel in to keep a 14.7 a/f ratio.

Quit flooring it so much and loosen the wastegate a couple turns. I have yet to see below 20mpg at the end of a tank, including some tuning sessions.
