I know someone brought this up once. I just finished my drive from San Diego to my house in Mississippi. I averaged 30.4MPG while traveling. Never really got out 6th while cruising. Just pushed down on the pedal when I wanted to go a little faster than the law allows. Got on it while coming back on the freeway and such. The Greddy catch can *IS A MUST*! I couldn't believe how much GUNK is in the tube going to the can and how clean the tube going back to the SC. The Thermal R&D turbo exhaust is sweet at cruise speed. The rain down in Texas got me concerned. Well, not really. For anyone pondering gas mileage and the JRSC there it is.

Yeah, some people have a hard time believing that the charger can still provide decent gas milage

Sorry. The Greddy Oil Catch Can. Goes in between the PCV and the JRSC. Catches, cools and filters the crankcase gases (has oilly type sludge in it) and sends it back to the intake fresh and cool.

**EDIT: At times I had the cruise set at 125mph and just chilling on the I-10E. For a while there I thought I had fallen into another dimension because I was the only one on the road.

If you don't use one, then you could run the risk of getting blow by gas sludge on the rotors, gumming up your intake valves, etc... You don't absolutely have to have one but it will help. Your choice.

You can pick up the can from just about anyplace that sells parts. Average price is about 90 dollars. No pics other than the avatar. Not since the recent changes.

I got about 22mpg with the charger. This included a lot of boosting.
A little boosting + VTEC'N, and a couple of redlines.
1/3 of the driving was city and the other 2/3 was highway. Hope that helps a little

oh, and wdsonny has:
Electronics:
Nology Hotwires, Hyperground System, Beru Silverstones (do not work with FI), NGK BCP7E-11 spark plugs (gapped 0.037)
