    The website won't seem to open for me. Does anyone have an alternate way of reaching Nick (aka: @tk1toaster)?

    Thank you.

    What kind of MPG are people seeing on a gen 2 once installing this new battery pack?

    If your old hv battery is in poor condition, it may cost you 4 or 5 mpg. So a new battery could restore mileage as long as other factors are not in play. Some have reported better than factory once they went to the lithium cells that are in limited supply.

    I installed a NPB pack last year and initially the fuel economy was 44 to 45mpg. After about a week of driving it went back to 48 to 52mpg. Which is the same as I got pre-install, so effectively the same. I think there must be a learning period when disconnecting the 12v, installing the new pack, and then driving. Not really sure about that, but that's the way it seemed. But the performance was a very big difference right from the first road test.

    Well since it’s a old car you must take engine performance and cat health into consideration.
    State of tune does it eat oil as that tends to clog the cat. Even an engine that does not eat oil after 14 years the cat tends to get clogged a little.

    I proactively sold my oem cat and after I installed a new after market cheap cat I swear the engine ran better even though my engine does not eat oil.
