I have logged 4800 miles on the Scion since the conversion (Mixed driving and one drive across country). It's very easy to get 40+mpg if I hold my freeway speed constant at 61mph. Averaging 70mph is about 37mpg. Mixed driving for me yields 42-43mpg. All of these are through my calibrated scanguage and a complete tank of gas.

My best two tanks are 47.8 and 46.5mpg so far. Speeds were kept under 55 on back roads around my home. I try to glide when I can, and kill the motor at long stop lights.

Still considering doing the taller 5th mod, but that will be later this summer.

All in all, I am very happy with the swap and haven't had any issues. I am not at the mpg level as many folks here, but with the great tips/tricks I have learned... my mpgs have only gotten better and better.

On a different note, the Scion pulls my small utility trailer great. No problems going up hills loaded with a riding mower and misc supplies from home depot.
