Fuel mpg and range

  1. I know alot of people who are having problems with their gas mileage and they are all sorts of cars ranginf from a blazer to honda civic. I think the gas is different somehow because of the price of crude oil going over 60 bucks a barrel!
     
  2. my driving is about 70-80% city driving. so i usually get around 20 +/- mpg.
    once time when i drove to ny and i was doin about 80 all the way i was about 180 Miles in liek half a tank
     
  3. wha?? my sticker says 20/29. And I've been able to hit 30+ before.
     
  4. I Just did a 60K Tuneup on my V6 put in a CAI and cleaned the Fuel Injection SYS, it seems like the GAS Mileage is better now......I am going to Las Vegas this Sunday ( about 300+miles from me ) and will TEST the MPG (will try to keep it under 80MPH :) can`t promise though :spot: )

  6. 22.63 mpg as soon as i put in new plugs.
    then the next tank was 21.99 mpg
    just got new wires today, doubt i'll see a difference in mpg but i'll let the numbers talk for that.
     
  7. I just drove 6 hours to Dallas this weekend, and with the AC on over half the trip, I still got 29 mpg right on the dot. :-D
     
  8. My car gets about 22 city and about 29 highway, and that was with the car running rich because the computer was stuck in loop mode since i had no thermostat installed in my car but installed a thermostat and it stopped that so i expect to see about 25 city and a bout 32 or so highway so ill let you guys know. :D
     
  9. I just checked today, 16.4.. i hate you guys
     
  10. I just got 2000 5-speed. I drive mostly country roads I get about 24mpg. I will do a tuneup soon and see if that changes anything.
     
  11. Doing city driving lately has gotten me between 19-23mpg. A few months ago, coming down to TX from PA, doing 70, no AC, and no stopping got me 37 mpg, though. Generally, 29-31 all highway (and a little faster) makes me happy, tho. It seems as though my car is not happy in the hot and humid Houston weather...

  12. Thats a good question...I own a 05 stang V6 and i've been buying BP Ultra..and I took a trip up from ft. lauderdale to st. augustine..(thats about 3 1/2 to 4 hour..) and I had to fill up once...now in the city i drive to and from work...thats about 17miles one way..i average every 2 weeks for a fill up..so its a good mpg ratio w/ the BP ultra....but that's my opinion...but here's the actually numbers..

  13. I just had my plugs replaced, prior to that I was getting HORRIBLE mileage. Now, I am sitting on exactly half a tank and my mileage says 270. Mostly highway, but some city in there too.
