I think that's about all your going to get. I get 250 to 260 miles out of a tank and average 18 mpg. Once in awhile I will squeeze out 19 almost 20 mpg. It don't matter what tune I run they all work out the same mileage

Yeah, I only get 220 max on my stock tune. Hopefully that number will go up once I take some weight off of my car and get a CAI + tune.

When's the last time the furl filter has been changed? A new fuel filter along with a new air filter can help fuel economy. I get about 400 miles on a tank with a 93 octane performance tune and around the same with a race tune.

Regukar maintenance of a fuel filter is about 30,000 miles.I drive a 2006 pony package v6 with lil over 62,000 miles on it. It just has an intake, tb, headers, exhaust, coil pack, wires and plugs.
