i'm just too sick of the 3's mileage

Re: i'm just too sick of the 3's mileage

I sorta feel your frustration, I am currently getting 23-24 mpg but it's cause my car is completely untuned. Have you tried leakdown testing your engine or compression testing it?

Titanium Grey HB 5 spd, ABS, Moonroof, Leather seats, Exel RS-GT 17x7.0 Hyperblack 225/45/17 Azenis RT-615, Racing Beat Front/Rear Sway + Endlinks, Mazdaspeed MSP3 Coilovers, 88 AWR Mount, Apexcone 6000k HID, I deturboed my car and removed my built engine. I'm now stock powertrain + an Injen.

We really don't need another thread about gas mileage. Please post in the existing threads.
