I drive a fast car, not drive a car fast.

Hi to all.
I'm one of the probably few on this site with performance mods done to his/her car. While these mods aren't the best for FE, it doesn't mean I don't get good FE. My car gets better FE then my wifes 02 Mitsubishi Lancer and a hell of a lot better then my truck. Just wanted to say hi and cheers to all of those with hot rodded cars getting good FE.

Welcome to the site! Actually there are quite a few performance nuts here. Ranging from GTO's, Thunderbirds, and Evo's.

Good luck hypermiling!

Here are some time slips from my 91 si civic hatch back with a 100 nitrous shot, intake, header, exhaust, race cam, drag tires and it was pretty stripped, lexan windows and all. It was not a "street" car even though I would drive it to the track I never figured out the mpg. around 30 I would guess.

the time slip all the way to the right sucked cause I spun my tires. It slows you down a lot when you spin 'em

Welcome! Pretty impressive timeslips there for that little car. I've always been amazed that the import cars can do so well with stock heads.

Welcome to the site, nothing wrong with having a fast car, I think most here appreciate them as well.
But you not the only one with performance mods.
My Supra is modded, but I haven't fueled it all year . . .

Golf will be getting larger injectors (more power + more MPG) + bigger tune this summer.
