I have searched around the site and seen a few ppl post their T3 gas mileage, but I'd like a few more :)

Can you please post your city/hwy mileage? Thanks :)

I would be buying a '91 bone stock turbo with retardedly low kms. (102K km/about 61K miles)...if the seller ever emails me back haha.

Cheers,
-Tamas

if you keep it bone stock unmodified 40-45mpg sounds good, my car gets 33 on good days and 27 on the bad ones. then again, its not quite stock

This thread needs some context: US or imperial gallons?

I would consistantly get 34mpg in mine beating the snot out of it constantly with 15" rims and more boost.

Being Canadian (hehe...I'm actually thinking of moving to Red Deer...) I'd prefer L/100km, but failing that US mpg will do ;)

34US mpg is equal to 6.91807598 l/100km. Red Deer is pretty sweet place to be. Good economy, housing is kind of stupid (my father's a house builder, so awesome for him). Oh, and I own all the turbo sprints/fireflys in Alberta. So I always have parts.

Ok then why the heck is my 89 turbo sprint getting below 30 mpg?! I have replaced the O2 sensor, air filter (k&n), gas filter and performed an engine flush. It has new tires and they are all inflated at around 40 psi (max on then is 44). It idles at under 1000. I dont bag it when i drive I am just really confused as to why I get low mileage. Especially because gas is getting close to $1.50/L despite the fact that I live 1 province away from the world's oil reserve.
