been a lot of talk here about fuel mileage. The last two months I have been averaging about 54 days per gallon. Don`t know why I live here.

Jesus H Christ, I would give my "Right and Left" nut for temps that U will be having this weekend. And also, U are complaining about two more weeks of winter?! How about three to four more months of winter in this God Forsaken state! I knew I should have moved to the sunshine state.

In the first half of my life I never experienced 4 months of winter totaled up.Now I'm up here in the north,it's been pure torture for me to have to endure the 2 weeks of this every January.

it would be great to have to spend two more weeks of winter for me. Had 10 in of snow last weekend, and got clear up to 11 degrees here yesterday. I feel so sorry for you!

Yeah, It's been foggy and in the 30s to 40s here for awhile as well. As long as it;s not raining I try to get out. My mileage has pretty much sucked since the PCV install though. I filled up the other day, got on the freeway and dumped the throttle only to watch my gas gauge go from full to 3/4. Rode somewhat "normal for about another 50 miles or so and am at a 1/2 tank. I seriously need some Dyno time.

Broke out the gear and rode into the office this morning. It was great and I'm looking forward to the ride home.

Dyno time with a proper tool that changes the program in the factory ecm.It takes a proper ecm a couple of seconds to learn the inputs so the outputs can be adjusted,not days and hours of running.Those alleged self learn ecm's are a joke.

So getting the Map tuned correctly on a Dyno should do correct?
