Thats not bad the best I've experienced with my '93 100CSQ 5spd has been
about 430 miles to a 21.1 gallon tank of gas...  But when i drive around
the town here in St. Joseph, Michigan, i only get about 200-300 miles per
tank of gas...  I'm not impressed wiht that at all...  But i guess that
kind of mileage is normal when you race SHO's, and Z3's and kill em...  Not
to mention other cool cars...
