Tall 6th gear.
Low coefficient of drag.

Probably could have done even better with the top on. I'll try that next time. I bet I can get it over 32.

I maybe get 20 on the highway lol. I know if i put bigger injectors on mine the little mpg computer gets tricked because it's using a lower injector duty cycle.

I don't think it's tricked. It's advertised at 28mpg highway off the showroom. However, I don't really know for sure. I guess it could be.

In town it shows I'm getting 12mpg but I don't really drive it save on fuel.
