To begin, this will be a record of my modifications to my 2016 Magnetic Metallic ST3. I purchased this car to use as a daily driver because it gets far better gas mileage than my Lightning and it is still a fun car that I can modify to my liking. It is my first FWD vehicle, first turbo vehicle, first non V8 vehicle so I have a lot to learn.

I dig the Lightnings too! Almost bought a built one in 2010, it was pretty badass but I never owned a truck before so I ended up in a Terminator.

Have fun with it.

I am in the same boat as you. Bought my 2015 st2 to have a fun little car that got good mileage. All has been good until I got the dreaded misfire that has started plaguing 2015 and 16 STs.

how do you manage 36mpg!!!??? I just CAN'T manage, I don't drive hard, but I do give it the beans a little. Like on a scale of 1-10 how easy do you drive it to get 36mpg? 97 year old grandma?

Granny shifting, no hills, no turbo, no stopping or slowing down, 40-60mph, Quality 93 octane, etc. I can't do it that's for sure.

60 miles a day round trip to work. Stuck behind a bus each morning and like 75/25 highway/city and I run 60-80 highway on 93 with a Tune...24.5-25.5 or so

He's slightly more south than you also maybe slightly better fuel. You both have wayyyy better fuel than this PA winter blend is right now. Yuck.

little to no boost, cruise control and going 55-60, 93 octane, 110 year old grandma shifting and staying on the highway. Usually the computer is wrong when calculating mpg so I wouldve estimated that at 34-35 mpg.
and its all stock, the shutters probably help

My computer is always low. It'll read 24.5-25.5 a tank usually with my commute and habits but estimate out to 26.5 to 27 or higher almost every time at the pump

Mine always reads high. Which is why I don't even want to calculate the real mileage of my next fill up:

The day after I bought my car (before tune) I saw 14.2 mpg because I played all Sunday and burnt the entire tank of gross 87 that the dealer gave me. And probably about 10% of the front tires :D
