I am looking at the Buschur 3" Exhaust. It says that it is CNC-bent. Is this worse than Mandrel-bent, and by how much if so. Also my fuel is goin down real fast. I lost half a tank driving 40 miles yesterday. Someone told me that it was my A/C but i dont think it would suck that much fuel. Its only got 700 miles on it so i dont know if i should change my oil yet. Any answers to either question would be great. Thanks:wiggles: :D

Do you have any mods on the car now? There is no way you should go through a half tank in 40 miles, even if you were driving WOT the entire time.

I am stage4 and can still get close to 400 highway miles to the tank.

I got the Buschur Turbo back exhaust about two months ago. The only increase in fuel consumption that I have noticed is when I have my A/C on or when I drive like a bat outta hell which is normal. Day to day driving and some spirited driving on the weekends using 91 gas with STP jet fuel I get between 275 - 300 miles to a tank. When I was all stcok I took a road trip and noticed when I didn't have my A/C on I got almost 400 miles a tank, but that was consistant driving at 60 - 80 MPH. When I had my A/C on it sucked gas pretty quickly only giving me around 250 - 275 miles a tank (that was on my way back when the weather started getting above 80). I would either fault the gauge or bad gas. However, if it was bad gas then your check engine light should be coming on. Hope this helps a little. Remember, if you have any other mods they could effect gas milage. . . but not that bad.

if you lost a half tank of gas on 40 miles, there is a much bigger problem going on. I changed mine at 1000, as an aside.

I would drive the car right to the dealer. You are stock and have nothing to worry about. This shouldn't be happening.

Yes, give them a call so that at least they have it on file in the event that it happens again.

just an update. Its a prob with the gauge. I refiled and noticed that it was dropping between 3/4 and 1/2. The car runs great otherwise. Just removed my intake silencer and it sounds badass now. almost broken in 850 down 150 to go. Also had someone remove my yellow from the headlights.
