Default Stage I MPG

I just went through my first tank full of gas after my Stage I install on my 5-speed and I got a little over 23 mpg. That's with small town, country highway and freeway driving. It will take a few more tanks of gas before I know just how much mpg I lost after the install. Right now it looks like 1 mpg.

You guys are great. I'm going to print this out and sell this performance upgrade to my wife as an "efficiency" upgrade. Whooo hooo.

I also gained approx 1.5 mpg since the stage 1 upgrade, I have also spoken to OurPTGT (Kevin) who said his mileage got better since stage 1 install as well.

Just think, in about 2 1/2 years the extra 1.5/gallon will have paid off. Kinding aside, I would spend the money for stage 1 just for the tighter gear shifts. Extras would be the HP and the extra milage.

This proves my theory:
If you have more Horespower and torque in the low RPMs, the car moves with less throttle and in turn less gas and ultimatetly, you have better milage.

My wife has a 96HP Rice-Burner and The tank lasts less than my Staged 1 PT. When I drive it, I am all the time at 50%-75% Throttle VS my PT that I can move at the same speed with just 25% throttle or less...

Sounds interesting, I may have to do the same as TurboT and show the wife the "huge" savings we'll see after stage one.

Agreed Ian, it makes sense, but I find if I have the extra power I tend to use it so no real MPG gains there.

I'm still running close to the same. Took a trip to Hoodriver this past weekend and averaged 27.25 MPG. That included 3-4 full throttle blasts to 85 MPH...those dang on-ramps!

i still have a problem understanding how you are gonna use less fuel with higer flow injectors and more demanding PCM programming for fuel.
