The MPGuino now under-reports fuel consumption by about 1.4%, where it used to over-report by about 4%. The MPGuino reports that I got 27.5 MPG. Not quite the 20% I had figured (and had secretly hoped for, to be honest), but still...

This is a improvement of 11.6% from the previous tank (02 July fillup) in which the old fuel injectors were used, and an improvement of 4% from the immediate last full tank that I put in two weeks ago.
11.6% is good. You'd be hard pressed to get an 11% increase with other methods...my wheel covers were (only) worth 7%.
How did you determine these 0280156161 injectors are 12-hole? I'm coming up with nothing. Found them at Bosch Fuel Injector Catalog Wholesale Prices No Charge for $25 each. If I could get the same results with my 4.7L, that'd be fantastic.
