I recenlty drove from Akron, Ohio to Myrtal beach in my avant. Unknown
chipset with 2.5pt, my gauge was telling me 26mpg, after 600+ miles and
still no needle on E, I filled up. 34.5 mpg with 4 people and all our gear @
70mph. It was kinda funny, I could not even see the tops of my rear tires
with the load, every toll booth exit was met with boost and squealing rear
tires as my fender lining wore away.

I don't think anyone can beat that mpg.

I don't know how you guys do it on MPG's?  I have the Lehman chip, and
always see (before and after the chip), 18-19 in town and 25 at 65 mph and
22 at 75.  Mileage only changes when I put my winter tires on, up 1.5mpg.  I
have had the car since 65k and now have 200k.  I run synthetic Mobile 1
15/50 usually year round.  I do a lot of 500 mile weekends on the highway
during the summer. I get 1.6-1.7 boost on the stock gauge.  No boost leeks,
changed O2 sensor at 120k (no mph change) and keep it well tuned.  I keep
40 psi in my RE 950's.
Another 2 mpg on the highway would thin my wallet less.
