MPG !!

Right,

Who gets what MPG ??

Because I have a standard STI version 3, no Mods, and Im getting 16MPG on the motorway, which is shit, the thing is I wouldn't mind if I was booting it.

I just did a 30 mile trip and did a quarter of a tank....

surely this isnt right, right ??

Know the feeling, although I feel obliged not to do foot to the floor for a whole 10 mins, afraid of running completely out of fuel ! haha !

if it had snapped the blue spring i would have be worried. i've order'd a service kit from fleabay for 14. might as well service the whole thing while im at it.
i did wonder why i was only getting 0.7bar boost. hopefully when its done i should see better mpg.
