    I average 20.9 back and forth to work. Mostly highway, some stop and go. That's not babying the throttle, but not getting down on it either. I've gotten 24 mpg on the highway though, cruising at 60 mph in 6th gear, running about 2000 rpm. 22 mpg cruising at 80 on the interstate.

    If anyone is disapointed at the mileage you're getting, you'll enjoy this.....
    I also own a 2008 Mazda Miata 2.0L (176 hp) and it only musters about 28 mpg on the highway. At 65 mph it's turning over 3500 rpm's in 6th gear. :rolleyes: My 98 GT is as good or better with 3.90 gears turning 2500 in 5th gear at 65 mph.

    2012 GT Premium, I average 16 city, don't know the highway. With that said, it's because I don't do this granny shifting junk 1 to 4 option. I bought a V8 for a reason it irritates me that I have to drop to 2d so early just so i don't have to fight it that hard to drop straight down.

    that's because Yuma has way too many stop signs and all the traffic lights never match. I am from the but currently going to school in a bigger place and I get 20/22 in town and 24/26 on the freeway on my GT manual.

    Both of these taken on the same type of drive from Houston to Shreveport. Lots of a open and flat terrain. Boring drive.

    Nothing compared to you new stang owners but considering the list of mods she has I can say that I am fairly happy with the MPG.

    2005 V6 auto - all stock except for full dual exhaust.

    Last trip we took was over 3000 miles - from AZ to SD and back plus a bunch of sight seeing etc. Except for all the construction we averaged between 65 and 75 mph using the cruise and running the air on and off when needed. We also went through the mountains twice (up and back).

    Averaged 29.5 mpg which we were really happy with. Awesome car to road trip in! :nice:

    I took a trip from CT to PA this weekend any my '07 GT/CS 5-speed turned 70k. On the way down I got 26.0 (even hit over 100+ a couple times) on the way home I behaved and never went over 85 and got 26.5, I do attrubute this to just getting new Continental DWS and had them filled with nitrogen. The good rubber must help. But around town I usually get anywhere from 16-18 depending on how the skinny pedal is treated.
