My 190 16 valve gets around 17 mpg in the city and about 22 on the highway at about 75/80 mph. Is this normal for the 4 cylinder 16 valve 190? The car also has a big bore throttle body by Bekkers. What are all you fellow 16 valve's getting in terms of gas milesga. The fuel injectors have been replaced, fuel filter is new, recent ignition tune, and tire pressure set to 32 lbs all around. Is this normal?
Thanks, Joe

The fuel mileage will also depend on where the lambda setting is. A little rich = more power and less economy.

My mileage is poor also, but I have a heavy foot. 175k doesn't help either, but runs great!

Damm,

With regular oil changes and factory settings on the engine, I am getting around 27 hwy & 20 city. I added this additive Militec-1, from usalubrications.com. Runs cooler, accelerates faster, runs smoother, gas milegae increased about 15%-20%.

Yeah the car has only 50k on it but still.
