Hi,

New to supras and i recently replaced my rod-knocking engine with a good one (still have a low lumpy idle problem that i need to solve) but i have a question..

what sort of MPG should i be getting around town? i worked it out to be about 18MPG :eek: . On the old broken engine i had done 250miles from Full to Half of a tank (motorway miles) so i was expecting about 25MPG or thereabouts.

Do i have a problem or should this sort of MPG be expected?

thats kinda low for a NA ....get your idle problems fixed, check for any fuel leakings since im sure fuel lines were seperated in the new engine install, and replace the fuel filter and see where you stand.

I've always gotten 18mpg on my NA. I recently ran some fuel injector cleaner through, and now I get at least 20mpg, and as high as 24mpg. Can't hurt to run some through. Wow I don't believe you got 250 miles to the half tank, thats when I fill up. Maybe I got something wrong :D.

haha his fuel sender is sticking. It takes forever to get to half, then it just plummets to 'E'.

Side note, I thought when you typed MPG it was a Mpeg Movie.

LOL.
