You should get a thread going on what people named their spark
Would be interesting to see what names people came up with!

Would it be okay to use premium fuel? Some guys I know with newer cars running 4 cylinders said they got better performance and a bit better gas mileage using 91.

After 5 months and 4000 miles, I was averaging around 36 for several fill ups, but the last two fill ups I've only averaged 32-33. I wonder if it has anything to do with the "winter blend"?

And I named mine Sparky too! LOL

Just might be that "winter blend". I think the rest test on the max amount of MPG's you can get will come in spring as it does have perfect conditions for an engine. Not too hot, not too cold, just enough cool air for an engine to be happy.

There is usually a 20% decrease in mileage over the winter from what I've noticed and read.
