2000 SL2
Happy New member from Pa. Bought a Saturn today.

I picked up a 2000 SL2 with 140,000 on the chassis and a replacement engine with 80,000 for $1800. 5 speed manual tranny.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Thanks Don, 38.0mpg on this tank full. A very noticeable shifting difference with the Mobil 1. New spark plugs coming this week.

Central Pa between Harrisburg and State College. Last tankfull, 40.6 mpg. No ac use with this tank. I'm going to do a piston soak, put in new plugs and clean the IAC today.

Filled up today. 40.1mpg. Need some more ideas to try. Thinking of trying the Peak synthetic rebate from AA. Also will need a muffler soon. Will a Flowmaster help mpg? I come from a racing background. How about panning the underside of the car for airflow? I know i'm crazy but I enjoy doing this stuff.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
