after a whole week of messing around with lean burn. I have figured out that with my car, I can get into lean burn at 2700rpm, with tps @ >15%, and load @ > 50. after entering, as long as I can maintain between 2000-3100 and the same throttle and less than 90% load, I can stay in. But the more interesting discovery I mad is that just because I am in LB, does not mean I am in the best gas saving mod. For example I found that on the highway, it is better to stay below 2500rpm about 60-62 mph in light traffic and take advantage of the Vtec-e, I can get anywhere between 48-63 on the IMPG but if i try to stay in LB, I would bounds between 20-60... this is only my third tank of gas on the new engine and new set up. I will keep updating until I figure things out weekly...
