    WELL, I've made a bunch of long trips with the Turbo Accord now and I average about 350-375 miles per tank. Not too shabby for running 550cc injectors ;)

    36mpg highway avg, have seen 38, 33 with ac on for a full tank of gas. Around town i get about 28-30mpg depending if i get on it.

    i think an accord has a tank of about... 16 gallons or so, my civic holds around 12.

    Wow. That's really good fuel economy! If you chose your turbo size well, you can actually increase economy when cruising. Smaller turbos will push the engine to zero vacuum or 1-2 psi, and that increases effective volumetric efficiency, giving you better mileage. That's where some of the "wasted energy" is recaptured with a properly sized turbocharger. That's how the turbo Insight guys are pushing 80mpg.

    I paid 3.04 for super yesterday, cheapest in awhile.

    I just bought a ramhorn mani, T3/T4 .63AR 50cold, HUGE FMIC, 2.5" piping. I want to go for more power :D

    BUT, at the same time, I can cruise 80-90mph on the highway out of boost still, so having a smaller turbo doesnt neccesarily mean you have to boost up to cruise. On a hill I hit 0 at times, but can usually carry my speed at 5" of vac.
