    TRUTH.

    The car most definately will need a full tune up and if your O2 sensors are bad your begging for bad gas milage.I changed all that stuff when I bought the car and it runs very well. Burns no oil and gets get 300 miles per tank. I cant complain at all.

    I promise the last tune up this car MIGHT of seen was at least five years ago. My guess on the O2 sensors is that they're still from when the car came out...seventeen years ago. Ha.
    I actually found this list of recommended things to do http://blog.brothersperformance.com...-tune-up-tips-for-your-favorite-ford-mustang/
    I really want to do it but with school and work all the time I can't get the time or funds together to work on my car. Just yesterday after school I spent three hours till it was dark replacing my window bushings(I'm a bit slow and meticulously careful :p) and barely made it with enough light left to work.

    But i'll add O2 sensors and coolant sensor to that list and order them up here in the next month.

    I got that, it was just a nice consolidated check list to go down instead of making my own.

    Hey guys
    Just wanted to give an update.
    I've tested it a couple more weeks and have laid into the pedal a little more.
    Theres no way I'm going to be able to keep up the 55-60 mph driving. Too damn slow. LOL!!!! So I sped it up to around 65-75 highway driving & I'm getting around 290 miles on a full tank. Still pretty good. Most definately enjoying the car. Gathering parts to make all my final mods at one time before the summer. Then I gotta get back to my old school. It needs some tender loving care as well. :cool:

    No warning lights.
    From my testing. The gauge can go pretty far down and not run out.
    If you see it going behind the E. You might wanna pull it!!! LOL.

    I got a new best in my car last week. Cruising 70-75 with the a/c on managed 28.9 mpg. The drive home had some city driving mixed in and I only managed a little over 27 mpg, but I let that tank go to 336 miles and it showed another 40 miles left to E. I'd say 400 miles is possible driving 100% highway.

    On the road course I only managed 90 miles on a full tank. :crazy:
