Default Back in a Saturn once again.

I see some familiar faces here still, has been about 7 years since I've been on any Saturn forum. Had an 02 SC2 that eventually found it's way to a custom turbo setup and got to meet up with a bunch of the other turbo Saturn enthusiasts from WI and a couple fellows from Iowa once at a little get together. Good times.

Anyways, grew older and started a family and all that jazz and ended up getting a WRX and a Forester and traded in the Saturns (wife at the time had a matching Saturn, met her on Saturnspeed ). I drive a lot for my job and was growing tired of the low 20mpg range at best with my Subaru so picked up a used 95 SL1 with 107k miles on the clock so I'm back in the Saturn family once again. It needs a bit of work but not too shabby for it's age, and it was a delight to fill it up for the first time today and witness 38mpg without really driving it like a grandma much at all.

Happy to be back, going to keep enjoying my 38mpg and beyond as I do some mod's and adjust my driving to net better results and drive this thing for 100's of thousands of miles.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Welcome

20mpg in a Subbie ??

my 95 Legacy wagon still gets 25 mpg mixed. It got about 20 until we replaced the knock sensor, subbies love to devour knock sensors
