I get 27-38 highway in my ve with stock everything, b14 non- lsd trans stock rims @35-45psi,

but my de ser with I/h/e only got 18-24mpg all highway, 17 inch rims with 45-50psi, b14 lsd trans,

mind you I drive 1300-1500 miles a week, I spend about 85% of the time at 75-90 mph, I get better mpg the slower I drive but most days that's not possible, I've been wanting to get the 02-03 p11 trans, or someday I might swap out the 5th gear

Quick question Vip doesn't the fuel tank have some sort of recirculation that returns that vaporized fuel to the fuel tank? or does that vaporized fuel travel through the "charcoal canister" and gets burned? Also do you think the heat ranges of spark plugs can play a role on on the mile per gallons I am getting? Right now I am running Ngk heat range 6 plugs.

5door Lucino VZR with Fuji muffler, Apexi pod, no cat and my best is 6.6l/100km or about 43mpg on a long drive with a full load. Around town its more like 32mpg but it really depends on how hard I drive.

I've put 14-15 in my 98 200sx before.

Keep in mind Tank capacity doesn't count the fuel up tube. Also with 98+ cars that have the Charcoil canister in the back of the car, it's possible that some of the fuel is going directly into the canister thus fueling up more then actual tank capacity.
