Thats the beauty of the Heffner kit... lotsa power on low boost.. easier on the system... higher reliability...

even at C&D when we competed with my yellow car we were only running 21 psi... on pump gas....

I never cease to be amazed by the FGT. I can get a steady 22-23 MPG on the highway in a totally stock Super exotic car. For my company I have a 2001 Malibu - gets 20 best case, a chevy colorado pickup - gets 16 best case, and a Chevy Dually - gets 8 loaded or empty no matter. MY FGT is the most economical car in the fleet!

A FGT cruising on the highway gets great mileage. I got low 20s going to Vegas for Rally III and I was cruising at an average speed of well above the flow of traffic with many WOT pulls in 3rd when passing. All done in the heat with a/c on full. Great mileage. A Prius would get worst mileage if it could even make the trip at that average speed, which I doubt could be done. Prius mileage goes way down if you go much over the posted speed limit and the with the A/C on the mileage takes a bit hit. Now drive in downtown San Francisco for 1 hour in a Prius vs. a FGT and a bet the Prius will be over well over 40 MPG an a FGT less than 10 mpg. Different cars for different uses. Which car would you use to take the kids to a crowded shopping center?
