Hey Guys My names Vincent or Vince Im 21 Im an actor and a HUGE TURBO BUICK ENTHUSIAST Turbo Regals = bow
I have a love for all things buick , turbo, supercharged or just plane ole buick , I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED Rivs and I absolutely LOVE the 3800 motors I think their is alot of potential in them. I have a basic knowledge of the motor mostly from info at regalgs .org.
Not too Fond of the newer regal Body Style , but I am a HUGE fan of the RIV body Style heart . So any way, I hear theirs some really good people on this board smile . Well my first question is since im looking at a daily driver what kinda MPG are you guys getting ?

welcome! there are a few things you can do to improve the mpg in your riv, but expect to see 17/27 stock driving it easy. its possible to get as high as 30+ if you have a tuner though.
i wont tell you what i get b/c i likely hold the sites record low due to my driving style, and only driving 1 mile a day to either work or school.

Welcome Vince! I can't tell you what kind of mileage I get. I've had the car eleven years and never checked it. I'm a heavy foot so it doesn't really matter to me.

I'm sure it would help Jimmy.
The guy that convoyed with us, from NC to the ROA meet in AR in 2005, has the 700R4 in his '63 said he got 23mpg. thumbsup
