    Just had a quick question...Ive tried to google it but I cant really get a straight anwser, and im not in the best position to do a road test at this time....In June ill be driving my 00 GT 1500 miles, I was wondering if anybody had a ballpark figure on how many hwy mpg I can expect. The only mods I have are FLomaster H pipes and KN Cold Air Intake, thanks guys/gals

    How many miles do you have on your GT?

    I can't keep my foot out of it for long enough to get good gas mileage.

    not a problem. :nice:

    may or may not be true, but using the ac at highway speed is more economical than with your windows down.

    215 miles a tank?

    I used to push 300, but that was running it until the low fuel light came on.

    I drove from Fort Wayne, Indiana to Manchester, NH last year. The best I got was 29.6 mpg, driving 67 mph with cruise control on through Ohio. Never went below 26 mpg as long as I kept my speed down. But in the city I get about 13 mpg.
