horrible gas mileage

I calculated my gas mileage for my last tank and i somehow got 16mpg...
i have a jlt cai, 91 octane tune, dual exhaust with muffler delete axle back. i dont drive very aggressively but do enjoy to punch it once in a while. any ideas on why it would be so bad?

Re: horrible gas mileage

i get about 14 in stop & go, 23 on highway with an auto trans

I'm guessing your mileage is a mix of the two?

Re: horrible gas mileage

I am getting 23-29 on highway with a manual. Change in speeds just kill your gas hand. Cruise control helps alot where u can.
