    I've read on this and other cruze related forums that a workaround to the auto stop feature is to put it in L, hit the + button until it gets to L6, and then drive it as normal. What I tried to find searching and couldn't was if anybody actually measured the difference in MPG doing this. I saw...
  4. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Chasing a low power / rich running condition I did boost leak test with some odd results. First I noticed the a leak in the hose from the intake manifold to intake side (pcv). This should never see boost so I checked the pcv nipped and it was there but very dirty. Cleaned it and replaced the...
  5. Gen1 Powertrain
    Just curious if anyone has run a warm air intake. Seeing as I have massive drops in instant mpg even fully warmed up during colder weather. Curious if having intake additional tubing run toward manifold to pull heat from there to bump temps would work. 15+ mpg swing in instant mpg on same route...

    So BNR made an aggressive tune for me with the recent install of the ZZP downpipe/Forge BPV and it runs great. I went to open her up one day for the first time, a week after datalogging, and hit a wall at 112mph. The governor kicked in and the car nose dived...The info center said "speed limiter...

    Hey guys, so it's been a couple of weeks since I did the headlight harness upgrade, and I must say, I'm pretty unhappy, I though for some reason it'd get better, but the headlights are a tad bit brighter, nothing significant like I thought might happen, so I'm probably gonna switch back to my...
  9. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So today was the day of my dyno run appointment at a local shop. This shop is 'known' for dealing with the Honda/Nissan compact car crowd but it was the nearest shop so I made the appointment. When I got there I was told that since my car was a diesel they would not be able to actually...

    Hey guys/gals, I have a 14 LS 6MT which is rated at 25mpg in the city.

I have no mods as to performance...
  11. Gen1 Diesel Fuel Economy
    Well, I can hardly believe that I have not had a long-ish road trip since January. But anyway, on Victoria Day, we did a 668 km round trip from Calgary, Alberta, to Edmonton, to see the Fort Edmonton historic park. (Well worth visiting if you are in the area.) The car carried two adults and two...
  12. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
