I shift mine pretty consistently at 3000rpm, and my long-term average is about 23.5mpg. The display will show up to 26mpg on the two-lane 55mph zones, but there's usually some traffic or a stoplight to bring down the average.

My wife shifts anywhere from 2k to 3.5k, so I know you can shift at 2k.

In a way it's too bad gas prices are down again. That makes it much harder to justify the computer to my wife.

On the other hand, she wants power more than I do, so I know we're getting a tuned computer one day! I just have to be patient.

TRIP 650kms
Averaged 10.3kmsLitre (Could not do better no matter how much I tried)
Averaged 88kms per hour
After Ecutek tune

I am averaging 12.1kms\ltr i ( although I have to sit at 110kms in 5th gear to achieve this - any higher or lower means that a drop in efficiency)
After the ecutek tune I find that sitting at 100kms/hr my rpms are at 2800. 110kms per hour is just a tad over 3000rpm.

this is true if you don't have to go every 4 days I seem to be averaging about 14.5 mpg city, average speed around 40mph. I got a lot of stop and go on the back roads.

I am going to try some different things to get the mileage up. About how much reserve is there in out gas tanks? it is a 14.5 gal tank total.

On the highway I get 28mpg (FP Red, 750cc Inj and 110oct. tune).

On track it's close to 3mpg haha.
