I got 25-27mpg on a 1200+ mile trip from Boise to Bay Area and back for
Thanksgiving, mostly law-abiding or +5ish on the freeway, some blasts around
traffic on the OR 55mph 2-lanes. Snow storm backed up traffic from Donner
into Reno on the way back, that didn't help mileage much - I had Hakkas on
already so could have gone faster than most CA BMWipers clogging the road.
My sedan has a Hoppen chip w/2.5Bar sensor. Plug wires, plugs, thermostat
several years old; most other engine components are original.
1991 200 quattro, 124k, developing CHF leaks from original hoses now it
1988 GTI 16v, 248k, 30mpg in town up to 35mpg on highway if not driven like
it's been stolen (but what fun is that?)
