    Hello all. I'm new to the forum, but not to the 5.0. Long story short, i have a turbo'd 306 running on megasquirt. Car runs, and runs pretty well. I have it tuned fairly rich for safety's sake at this point. Now thats great for boost, but not so great for gas mileage. Now i know a boosted v8 wont be a shocker in the MPG department. However, i'm going through six gallons of gas in under an hour out of boost just cruising. Attached is my fuel ve table. Any advise/criticism you guys have would be welcomed. Also my setup is as follows.

    306
    trw pistons
    e303 cam
    gt40 heads
    52lb injectors
    255gph fuel pump
    t04b

    in a volvo haha.

    50volvo,
    can you post your msq file? I'll take a look, I haven't really done any boosted apps yet, but the cruse portion of the fuel map should be the same as a N/A app. Are you running a WBo2 or NB? From what I can make out in the picture, it is VERY rich in the idle and cruse ranges.
