Mine either, the one does have a check gauges light that'll come on though, then flash...running low is the only thing I have ever seen it come on for...i've pushed it, I've got about 2 gallons or so when that comes on...

either way...time = money...is a good arguement...although gas = money as well...:cwm21:

Driving no more than 10 over the speed limit of 70 is definitely my best gas mileage area...65-70ish isn't bad either though, but once I get below 60, around 55, my gas mileage plumits...I've plotted it on various little trips...

Well I've got enough money saved up to afford another upgrade now. So I'm lookin at headers again.

Would these headers be worth my while? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8077215873&fromMakeTrack=true Any better recommendations? I'm a newb when it comes to performance upgrades (as I'm sure you've noticed lol) so I've gotta ask about everything before I buy.

you should head over to dsmtuners.com - they'd know alot more about talon/eclipse performance.

driving easy (shifting around 2k and accelerating slowly) i can get 28 MPG in the city...

which equals 400+ miles per tank (my tank holds 17 odd gallons, refuel light comes on with about 2 gallons left)

on road trips doing 80 the whole way i get about 33 MPG... god bless honda :D

Awesome thanks. I will definitely check that out. I read a little on "DSMtalk.com" (what does DSM mean anyway?) but didn't see anything other than "Get a cold air intake, exhaust, turbo" so...

Also, John. How is going the turbo route saving money? lol It costs like $2-3000 and requires me to get a whole new engine (which costs another $1000 I'm guessing) or am I missing something here?

I have heard of the OBX headers breaking at the flange.
