four 146 mile trips, mileage, tuner, $$$
so about once a week i'll make a 146miles round trip and well i can barley get 16.4 mpg according to my lie-o-meter and my hand calc seems to be inconsistant too. i figured i multiple my trip odometer by 1.0093 to get how far i actually went.
part 1: so i do this: (current trip miles)x 1.0093=xxxxxx then i devide the corrected miles by the gallons.
my current tire size is 315x75r16 and the tires website says its 602 revs per mile for the tire. is that correct? or am i retarded?
if i run a sct canned tune like street, tow, or the hot performance tune and just cruise at 65 whole way will that get my mpg little better? i havent had merrited results with the tow+50 but curious if anyone has any long highway mileage data with a tune/ without?
