These cars ARE capable
of really great gas mileage... if you don't abuse them!
When I got my car last June it was totally stock and I got window sticker mileage... like 14 city and 24 highway... Then I started buying parts!
My Windstar (with optional 65mm throttle body) was worth +4 mpg in town and on the highway.
Tuner was worth about that much also.
Shorty headers, High flow cat X, and catback helped in town but hurt highway mpg. Same day as exhaust install I also installed screamin demon coil, new wires and plugs...
Now this UDP added a few mpg highway.
This was my city MPG a few weeks ago. 24 MPG City
