Evo X gas mileage?

I know we don't buy our Evos for gas mileage, but I was curious what everyone is getting. I'm also curious about the gains you get with different mods. Free flowing exhaust, intake, chip, or whatever else seems to help. And, if anyone knows what speed gets them the best fuel economy, I'm interested to know that, too.

I've calculated my gas mileage a few times (dividing the miles by the gallons to refill it), and I've come up with about 23.2miles/gallon for my 5-speed GSR. Better than the EPA rating, but not by much.

I know the owners manual says to go 50mph whenever possible, but if the indicator on the dashboard screen can be believed, my gas mileage STINKS from 50 to 55. There are a few sweet spots in the speed range...one at about 64mph, one a little below 70mph...the best seems to be 44mph. Just like my Nissans, it's the most efficient going as slow as it can in the highest gear. Some of the back roads of FL let me drive that speed when I feel like stopping to "smell the roses."

I've also input my miles and gallons on www.gasaroo.com, and got the same mpg result.

If a $600 computer were to give me an extra 2mpg, a little math tells me it would pay for itself in about 1200 miles.
