    I don't have to use the highway to get to work so most of my driving is side roads. I'm averaging 17.8 right now.

    About 17mpg in mixed driving with mixed shifting (some low rpm for fuel economy and some having fun). Better than I used to get with my 97 GT but still not good.

    I got 20 on my last tank now with 1200 miles on it. There was a good bit of 55-65 highway driving on that tank.

    I wonder if the gas mileage improves with more mileage? Sure looks like it.

    For those of us with the AOD, I know the adaptive PCM does get better with mileage. If I would stop unhooking the battery, perhaps mine would seat itself. Battery disconnected after initial purchase, for Driving lamp install, for fuel tank replacement.

    V-6 AOD - MPG averaging 18 - 19 w/3,800 miles. Ride him like I'm launching from a 1/4 mile Christmas Tree light, except when my son is in the car with me!!!!
