Hello all,

Just wanted to say hello. Recently purchased a new to me 2013 ECO 6MT.

Loving the blend of power and MPG this car offers. Hope to have an intake and tune soon.

Thanks for the warm wishes.

I cant believe the MPG I have been able to get with this car. Ive been right around 40.5 combined MPG (hand calculated at the first shutoff) with an 84 mile daily commute (80/20 hwy/city mix). Posted speed limit is 65, I set the cruise at 67, and haven't really been hyper-milling at all, just using DFCO combined with getting into 6th as quickly as possible.

Ive seen a best of 50.4mpg/25 mile avg, 47.2mpg/50 mile avg (tonight on the way home) and 41.4mpg/500 mile avg!

Looking at doing the 15.6 gal mod (would like a 700 mile tank), removing the intake resonator and adding a k&n panel filter.

You can get 700+ miles without changing out the fuel pump. I'm convinced GM underrated the ECO MT for fuel economy. I haven't touched the fuel pump and have 715 and 814 mile tanks. I normally run 350-400 (winter) and 475-525 (summer) between fill ups.

I'm more interested in the 15.6 mod for ease of filling to the total capacity. I have an hour+ commute to work, I don't have the extra 20 mins (I'm guessing here) to trickle fill the last several gallons. Also, not too keen on always needing to have fuel in a can at home to top off without a shutoff.

As of right now, I'm hitting 475-500 miles per fill-up. I have not doubt I can stretch those fill-ups further. But I'm just a casual hyper-miller.
