    I don't care how big your engine is if you're not making a lot of power you're not eating tons of gas.

    1.6L gets 30-40MPG and makes 160HP

    5.7L getting 18-22mpg making 250+ HP

    1.6L making 250+ HP making 18-22mpg

    Hmmmm

    bottom line if you make power you eat up gas. If you don't make any power then you don't eat up gas. =)

    My civic had Vtec with stock cams however it still managed to get around 18MPG at best.

    He is right they get good gas milage for an 8. My truck gets 15mpg city and about 20 mpg highway. Got to love filling a 26 gallon tank when gas is over 2 bucks a gallon. Gas pumps shut off at 50 bucks when you use your credit card :(
