Post mpg?? please help
Hey guys first post here in the dsm world n honestly I wanna say how much I love the dsms I owned a 2g gsx that I had wanted since 14 years old (now 23). I would drive in city about 5 miles a day but I had to let it go since I got a job 30 miles away and though it might be too pricy on gas. Got a pos honda civic wich gives me great mpg but completely miserable I hate this car. Now that I bought a suv for my family n im pretty stable now I wanna get a dsm again to make my life whole again. I just have no clue on what kind of mpg easly modded dsm car gets (mods thinking of: intake, exhaust, 14 b 16 g turbo, intercooler, aluminum rad ..not thinking of messing with fuel system or anything but maybe up the boost to 15 since running stock injrctors) also my driving is not too crazy i wont really will be smashing or running boost the whole time.so can anyone give me on idea on what kind of mpg you get with similar mods?? I know every situation is different just need a idea or base to start off. Or any advice on the matter or am I just gonna be spending way too much on gas?? Thanks in advance guys

It honestly all about your driving style. Im always trying to find ways to take it easy on the gas.
However.... Once boost comes in, you can say goodbye to whatever type of gas thats in the car.

I haven't actually figured out how much I get per gallons but recently I went 291miles on 12gallons with my AWD Spyder. I just have a E316G, hard piping and an Intake on wastegate pressure. I daily drive my AWD spyder 40miles round trip to work and back.

On E85 I get like 10mpg lol, but I beat the piss out of it. I remember being on a 16g a long time ago and getting 23ish cruising around 70 on the freeway. I usually didn't pay attention to mpg, you don't buy a turbo car for mpg...
