Its not really an "ecomodder" one, its just 10 bucks cheaper for being a member. And what does it advertise as? Lol

I like being able to REALLY monitor whats going on with my car. But for the general user, an UltraGuage may be better. Its nice being totally customizable, seeing What I want how I want.

6th gear.

On topic, there are some 15+ gauges, but these are my most relevant while driving, since I can only run four at a time. HP, temps, all kinds of stuff. I really like the gallons per hour, but not enough space. I know other stuff works, but this is pretty cheap and has some pretty nifty features. If you want to pm me or start a thread about instrumentation in general, then I would be happy to chat more, do not want to derail this thread. I know of four gauges, but two are irrelevant for obdii cars.

Has anyone noticed that Octane rating. Say 89 vs 91 ? Makes any diff in the MPG ?

I always use SHELL premium on mine. I get a little better mpg and the gas is better for the car.

They were saying on Barrett Jackson tonight that today's motors have a knock sensor, so if you use say 87 octane it backs the timing down automatically so the engine won't ping and hurt itself. Very interesting to know this. So probably from now on ill use just use the 91 Super Unl. & top off with octane boost for the drag strip.

What are your rpms at 35 mph in 6th? I was just thinking with bigger gears, your rpms should be higher than a 6.
Actually I noticed this same dilemma as well, with 3.73s I get better at 75 than 65 but that's just what the digital readout says... I haven't actually tested the results by measuring fuel burned versus distance at both speeds so it could just be a quirky readout

Ford even mentions somewhere in the book that there's mild HP difference when using lower octane because of the timing adjustment

My car is a 2012 and I tracked MPG running both octanes for about 10 tanks each and there was no difference between the two.

True, my truck for example has 37" tires on it and it will not even go into OD till almost 70. Every gear has It's own sweet spot.

My 2012 GT gets a combined 22 MPG (mostly city miles). Milage increased after installing the Ford Racing performance tune. Before the tune, 18 - 19 MPG. so... a 3 to 4 MPG increase.

This is mostly city driving, plus since company hooks me up with gas, I kinda leave it running idle practically all day this 15-20 degree weather hasn't been fun this week

The new Focus consciously driven gets around 40 mpg I THINK. I will have to double check.

If by today's motors, you mean any EFI turbo motor built since about 1980 and almost every motor made since about 1985, yeah, knock sensors being there and pulling timing to avoid ping is in place.

That might seem more realistic if your being extremely frugal, I don't know how on earth anybody here could get over 20 mpg on a V8 Mustang and drive it normal. Unless they reset the mpg and drive like a grandma for a day, they should try not resetting it for a whole month if used as a DD and see what they get. I'm not convinced at all, and it kinda defeats the purpose of getting a muscle car. I only been driving my new focus for about 2 weeks and get a out 19-20 mpg, maybe cuz I drive it like the Mustang lol

Proof it is possible, fuel consumption is a direct relationship between vehicle speed and engine RPM, keep your RPM's down and mpg goes up. Stop flooring it everywhere and only launch when something "worthy" is around and your MPG will be alright. Stop flooring it around those ricer civics.....

Doing what you say defeats the purpose if owning this car.

I have Corsa Extreme Exhaust, but like I said, I drive it responsibly unless something worthy of me giving up MPG is around. Just because I don't drive like an ******* 100% if the time doesn't mean that it doesn't get driven like a muscle car.

You mean over 20 mpg on highway right? Thing is I have nowhere to have fun in Miami. So my mpg is pretty good most of the time. I never see it it 15 average in the city anymore.
