    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

    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.

    That's when my car was all stock with nothing but highway driving. Now I'm lucky to get 200 a tank before filling up :(. Living in the city sucks

    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.
