ok I am dumb, I checked your SIG and now see why you get 12-15. I would probably be ok with that if I was pushing those numbers in my galant. What is funny is that my 86 C10 which is lowered with a 383 stroker can get about the same mileage.
Around 400 HP N/A with a 3 speed transmission and 3.73 rear gears lol.

:lol: I would prefer driving the V8 as well - don't think I can ever be happy driving anything N/A with less than 6 cylinders.

I got around 20mpg as long as I didn't stomp on the loud pedal.

hmmm...this makes me feel better about my mileage i guess. I always thought a 2.4L would do much better than 23. If I'm going to get mileage that is sub par anyways, is there anything I can do to make the car a little less boring to drive other than a turbo kit. From what I hear the 2.4 is an extremely efficient engine and does not see much benefit from intake/exhaust modification. Is this true? Of course, my upgrades will go in order of suspension, appearance, performance. dno tho.

I wish I could keep myself from paying attention. If i didn't pay attention, it wouldn't bother me so much. Ignorance is bliss.

I've got a modded 2000 V6, and your mileage is terrible. What kind of maintenance have you been doing? I'm getting 24 on the highway and 19 in the city with headers, I & E and a 65mm TB. That is, unless I stomp on the loud pedal like Dry Bear said. :lol:
