Looney Tune MPG-Blown Away!

I recently purchased the non studded looney from Vivian for my 04. Today I finally got to put pen to paper and see what kind of mileage I got and I just still cannot believe it!

You guys do the math. 340 miles exactly. 13.4 gallons of fuel!

Yes my mileage calculator is dead on. I have used my GPS to check my mph and its dead on with what the guage says.

Whats crazy is just in that tank ALONE I paid for my looney tune haha

You're only getting 13.4? You must have your foot in it a lot. I'm averaging 15-16 in town and 20-21.8 on interstate.

No he's making you do the math. He's getting around 25 mpg.

I'm an idiot I read it and understood it as 13.4 mpg. I've had too much to drink.

Nice. I just paid for a programmer from another member here and hope to be running the same tune on my 06' soon. I just worry that running Looney Fuel on stock bolts, even though it's made for them, means I'm pretty much on borrowed time until sh!t happens.

A lot depends on the level you fill it up to as well. (If you filled all the way the first time and then the second time you only let it shut off once) Best thing to do is use an app for mileage and it will give you an average over a bunch of tanks.

I don't see how y'all are getting such good mileage, mine with the extreme street "I think that's what it's called" from innovative is only getting 14 on paper, it shows 25 on the insight but its showing the low boost code don't know if that has anything to do with it and it has 4.33 gears I think that's what they are I know there low
