    '97 C5 Corvette. Bone stock. 278 miles from Brucken Germany (elevation ~350m) to Grafenwoehr, Germany(elevation: ~412m). I have not verified at the gas pump, yet. The spedometer is accurate to within 1kph using a GPS as a reference.

    I generally kept the speed around 50 mph (80 kph), but it varied depending on traffic, hills, construction etc. Stayed between 40mph and 65mph and stopped 3 times during the trip. No drafting. Used the cruise control early on in the trip, but maybe 80 miles into it, I decided to go for fuel mileage and wanted to modulate throttle myself.

    Previous best was 38.8 mpg as measured at the pump vs. the odometer. The driver's information center read something like 37mpg. That was on a 600mile trip from FL to OH.

    2012 v6 Base model - currently averaging about 25.5mpg.

    I get around 23 around town but I can get up to 32 on the highway if I cruise a constant 70 or so without a bunch of hills.

    You're driving it right, but not using enough fuel. Can you say Kenne Bell? :D

    The gage shows 17.2 right now, but this is an averaging system that seems quite flawed to me. I do have a BAMA street tune on a '13 auto 5.0 with Roush 20s.
