I have seen as much as 15% gains from spark timing adjustments alone (that comes with a trade-off, usually increased NOx emissions)

My best with the electronic carbed chevy sprint was 3.9 l/100 kms. I am a canadian

And I would prefer another suzuki product (the chev/pontiac/geo variety). My main concern is parts availability. I work at a GM dealership so that gives me an inside line on parts ;
Welcome to EM! It's nice to have a GM tech on board. You are under the hood *and* inside the chip!

There is no escape!
