I do not know if this will be helpful, but as far as I know, these are the only ecomodded Subarus that we have had: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...l-14034-8.html

They gave up, replaced them with a Mini and a Metro, respectively. I am not sure if we have heard much from either of them since.

Brucey had a Subaru, but I do not remember any specifics.

I had a 1999 Forester. It had similar ratings to my Accord, but I only averaged 27 MPG, I tried a few things, but replaced it with my Civic--after replacing the head gasket.

Zerohour did some cool things. I am sure there is plenty of potential to tap in your car!

I had a '98 Forester. I got rid of it when I got my Prius, and I'm not sorry to see it go. Its best result was about 32, and I suspected a math error. Typical results were more in the mid-20s.

Take it easy

We had a 3.0 subaru legacy outback. Use to get 31 imperial mpg cruising at 75 mph with no mods. 1st thing i would do after reading on subaru onwers web page is increase tyre pressure by a minium of 4psi as subaru setting is too low. Then usual things tune up grille block etc etc.
