In the city with very little highway driving I get about 15mpg

CPT62 turbo, 72# injectors, double pumper, ported heads, 218/218 cam etc etc
I'm running a little rich too. With a different chip and some highway driving I bet I could squeeze 18-20mpg easily

My GN would get 24mpg as the best. That was with an old Kenne Bell chip from the late 80's. Sold the car in '92.

My TTA got a best of 30mpg with the stock injectors and a Thrasher92. With 50# injectors and a hacked Thrasher92, I got a best of 29mpg. Not too shabby after busting off mid 11 sec. timeslips :D

17city and 25 Highway stock according to my window sticker. I haven't actually calculated since the 60lb. injectors and GT3255 turbo.

Got my car running again and I am only getting about 15MPG. I let the car warm up for a long time 10-15 minutes and my BLM's ay idle are real high so this probably is the reason why mileage sucks.

BLM's have settled down, 2500 miles on this rebuild. Everything is going great. I am getting about 14MPG with a heavy foot. Idles rough but does not hesitate.
