I want to know what DOES cause better gas mileage in this car? Speaking of BS flag, I see all these guys with thousands in mods to make a stronger car on the straight in the quarter, saying they get anywhere from 17 to 20 city! huh?
I have a pure stock car that runs like silk but gets 14 around town even if I drive it like my grandmother. Somebody tell me how to push those numbers up to a notch above EPA estimates and I will be a happy man..otherwise, I may just have to buy a Hemi Hog truck to justify blowing my fun money on gas. That's way more expensive than Patron shots bruddas.
