Default 52mpg!!

I just got back from a trip to Springfield, MO, about an hour away. I just kept her at a steady 55mph the whole way (and yes, I did get passed by EVERY single car), and lo and behold my surprise when I filled up to the tune of 1.18 gallons for a 62.4 mile trip. That's 52.88 mpg baby!

And what's more is that with a few cheap, simple mods I could probably net even higher highway MPG's. After all, my current mods are, well, none. I might start a thread on the car, but for now I thought I'd post and brag about my MPG!



Pics:

Not much to her, just a poor old B13 SE-R with dents, dings and 189,000+ miles. Still, she's straight and held together well, and she runs great. Notice the cut-out in the front bumper lip where the previous owner had an intercooler. Not likely going to happen again, as I'll probably drop in a VE engine instead.



This is her at the shop, getting some work done. This was about December 09, before I got rid of the tiny Toyo's the guy had on her for auto-x. Now she's rolling on Sumitomo HTR T4's in 175/70/14 size (about 4% over stock size).
