Got 22mpg from my latest tank of fuel...20mpg on the one before that.

Feeling pretty good about it since my current job has a lot of commuting.
In the last few weeks though on my burb.
4" Flo-Pro Exhaust, turbo-back.
New MotoMaster AT/3 Tires. (Rebranded Cooper's)
New Batteries
New Starter
Front shocks
Front sway bar links
Rear sway bar links + frame bushings
And finally got around to replacing my burnt out parking lamp.

I put the tailights with new circuit boards and bulbs along with the harness back upon the 96 Chevy I have with the van engine.The rain was pouring here yesterday so it was a good day to install those few things.

I just put a new driver's door handle assembly (interior) on the Burb. For the last couple of weeks I had to roll down the window and reach outside to open the driver's door. Very annoying.

Started to install boost gauge. Got it mounted in the dash, routed the tubing that cam with it...3 inches short. Ran to O'Reilly and AutoZone to look for brass barb fitting...nothing.
Ate a late supper and didn't make it to the hardware store in time to get more tubing or fitting. Try again tomorrow.

Finished the boost gauge install. Live and learn; it was $8 Amazon gauge. Sealed plastic, so I can't fiddle with the adjustment screws. It's bottomed out at -3lb pressure at idle. Apparently China is too focused on improving human rights and has let their metering quality slide.

On the plus side, I found a cheaper alternative to Leroy's boost bolt. $10 from GlowShift on Amazon.

"Apparently China is too focused on improving human rights and has let their metering quality slide." That's a keeper. Going to send it on to some buddies. Just my .02, but I'd get a better gauge.

I replaced motor mounts...two different sized clamshells on my rig required grinding down own of the new poly mounts on a big edge sander to fit.
Still on the jack stands waiting for downpipe from Quadstar to get this HX40w in.

I'm amazed that you have any expectations from anything that is made in China.
