View my fuel log 2018 Mirage GT 1.2 automatic: 38.5 mpg (US) ... 16.4 km/L ... 6.1 L/100 km ... 46.2 mpg (Imp)
Entering 9.2 gallons of gas has been used every time (regardless of how many miles have been driven or how much gas is still left in the tank) is not going to give you the correct mpg on any site.
Using the correct tire size, proper tire psi, & doing your best to refill your gas consistently the same way every time will help. Obviously, weather (wind), traffic condition, open windows, A/C, etc. are other outside factors.
Adding a throttle stop to car driven on road should be illegal. I see that as something you would use to limit the speed of a go-cart for a young child.
A throttle cable spring of some type could probably be changed on a Mirage, but I really don't see the need for that. I really don't see that improving the mpg of the car. It may make your right foot/ankle stronger, however.
Folks, I can tell you there is nothing wrong with MirageRally or his Mirage. We met this morning and frankly, it left me wanting to go out and get a new Mirage his is so nice.
I hadn't really followed this thread until yesterday. The throttle stop sort of caught my attention & made me relook at what was being shared.
I think he will be much happier with his future mpg calculations!
Just the same - it's nice to have another forum member confirm everything looks good! Well done Eggman!!!!
Oh yeah, it was a very nice visit. We discussed recording our next get-together and posting it as a video as we covered a lot of ground about the forum, our Mirages, etc. Is there any interest in such a venture?
For example -
Mirage Reviews -
A number of forum members (Pryme, Johnny Mullet) have done some nice video reviews of the Mirage.
Mirage Maintenance Reviews -
Oil changes, brake work, resetting your wrench icon, or whatever.
I don't know what categories would be best?
We have members who have shared some nice clips over the years. Like "Adding Factory Cruise And Fog lights To My Mitsubishi Mirage. ETACS Programming 101" -
Someone like me has this clip in my brain, & I can find it on youtube.com. A newer forum member may not know these clips exist.
I see the value in having something like that. That could include a category for members getting together like you just mentioned.
I don't expect a Scotty Kilmer category to show up on the forum, however!
Just thinking out loud! No expectations.
