Re: 04 xB fuel mileage
Let me Chime in. It's all about your driving habits. I track my MPG on a monthly basis ever since I put my '05 RS 2.0 back on the road November 2014. I have never averaged less than 33 MPG in any of those months, and I drive it every day. I will say I avoid stop and go traffic like the plague, but not easy to on So Cal freeways during work commutes.
RS 2.0 restoration project: Punched in the nose, RIP
Moving most of it's goodies to replacement RS 1.0.
Ultra-Gauge (more info), Dynamat entire floor pan and doors (less noise), Enkie RP02 Racing wheels (Lighter is better), K&N Typhoon (Vroom), DC Sport Exhaust (came stock), Hotchkis Front Strut and Rear Sway Bar (less sway), Headrest Speakers, (best mod ever), Escort ZR-4 (fair is fair), Cruise Control, Rear Camera, Tweeters & Sub-woofer
