Fuel economy is supposed to be better with Hackish's tune, but I haven't really been paying attention to that if I'm totally honest
I need to follow your example. Part of the reason why my fuel economy isn't great is that I tend to run about 80 mph/129 kph on the highway, which spins the engine around 2600-2700 rpm, and sucks up precious premium. Also, while I try to short shift, one of the reasons for owning a GT is that the engine sounds darn good when you let it spin up a bit. I'm going to make an effort to be a good boy this week, and see what kind of mileage I get.
