Re: Quick Checklist for better gas mileage?

I suggest Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy in 0W-30 for an automatic transmission,

Re: Quick Checklist for better gas mileage?

Tire pressure…

Look on the sidewall of your tires.

It should say “44 PSI Max” or “51 PSI Max”

If 44, put 33-35 in, if 51, put 40-44 in. Slightly lower in the front…

OEM pressure...

Saturn Ion 17" rims...

A post the other day had me wondering...

Has anyone put Saturn Ion 17 inch rims, with 205/50R17 rubber, on a 3rd generation Sl2?

If so, how did it ride?


I know Ion 16 inch rims will fit....

Re: How big can rims be?

205 is about the widest you can put on, without changing the offset.

I would visit a junkyard and find either Saturn S Series or Saturn Ion rims.

I suggest General Altimax...

Happy Re: SW wagon good for a long road trip?

Get an manual SW2, 2000-2002, third generation.
A little smoother running, slightly better mileage…

Do the 5th gear swap, go from a .730 5th to a .605, drops the RPM’s by a thousand…

Do not...
