First off, NEVER trust the trip computer's reading for MPG: Always check
with actual fill-up numbers. This is what I do on a regular basis and also
how I adjusted my trip computer to reflect more accurate readings.
My 200q20v (3B) fully loaded will average 24 MPG (US Gallon) @ Avg 65 mph,
which includes 45 mph contruction zone traffic and 80+ mph runs. This is
with Hoppen ECU. Motronic will beat out K-Jetronic any day in the MPG
dept,. but my guess is that Jim was kidding with his sustained 130 mph 50
mpg claim (or smokin' something).
