Hi from the Great White North

Signing on from Southern Ontario. I love the concept of tuning a car to get more from it than the original design whether it be more power, or better fuel efficiency.

I drive a 1998 Acura EL. 388 500 kms turbocharged for 258 000 km, but tuned to run 16-17:1 AFR on the highway. My best L/100km is 5.88 combined, but mostly highway. I usually average mid 6-low7 L/100km in the summer. The efficiency really takes a nose dive city driving in the winter. This spring/summer will be the first with the current engine tune.
