Hello everyone,
Not to be a arrogant about it - but I didn't buy a turbo to have a concern about my gas mileage. It is what it is, unless its like 8 under normal driving - than there may be a problem.

I have had 3 turbos and they got between 11 to 16 mpg. If I am on it and driving aggressively it probably was around 8. Monitoring the AFRs would help - which I need to do. And as others have stated - its all about the mods.

So 12 is not too bad, but a consistent 10 may show some other issue. How you drive is also part of it - at what RPM do you shift at, pushing hard when starting from a red light, going to full boost on short accelerations, etc.

There are alot of people to learn from here who have great experience. The pelicans have helped me in my recent and continuing build. Good luck and welcome to the 930 club.
