Anyone know how to get better mileage cheap, my car dosen't get too good of mileage for a 95 grand prix 3.1L V6. I only get about 18.5 mpg when i'm not ripping on it and that is highway miles. I used injector cleaner and that added about .5mpg and i want better.

Take a couple hundred pounds out of your car... and put aerodynamic air sheilds over the back wheels to decrease drag. Get a lighter hood, take out the back seats, take off all panels and doorpanels and speakers... well I'm getting carried away lol

I think the optimal speed for good MPG on the freeway is around 50 or 55 mph

MOst cars have the best preformance at about 2,500 RPM (gas Milage Wise) So i would say also try to keep it inbetween there. I also don tlike the k&n that much anymore. i had a k&n on my old chevy. It didnt increase nothing for me really. I thouhgt it was a waste of money. If you car is so **** that a freaking air filter makes a differnt in preformance, then all i have to say is, MMMMUUUHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHH

Yeah thats white older cars (like my former 91 Taurus) have a red mark at 55MPH...back when oil was scarce they wanted people to drive at 55MPH to conserve gas.

no clue, it still is 75 in some places in the US. There even used to be a road or two in Nevada that didn't have a speed limit, or the speed limit was something like "use your judgement based on weather conditions". Now I think it's 75.
