    I think your lying too (hehe) unless you went downhill both ways, unlike my dad who had to walk uphill to school, both ways.

    I do 20 highway miles a day and probably 10 city and i get an average of 17-20 unless i have been stomping on it, then i get 16. 4800MI.

    I just broke 6800 miles in my 06 GT and I consistently average 21 mpg with an even mix of highway and city driving. Of course I like to push the rpm's more often than not.

    Just completeted a 1 week-3250 mile road trip in my 06 GT. Averaged 24 mpg from Louisiana to Colorado and back. Going and coming doing 75-80 mph. Even took it up to the west portal of the Alpine tunnel of the abandoned Denver & South Park R.R. (10 miles of 10 ft. wide rocky road 4% grade ) top was just at timberline. Worst mpg was 23, best was 26.5. Car loaded down with tent, air matress, ice chest,etc. Plus me and the wife. Also made a side trip to the bottom of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison river which was a 3 mile long-16% grade. No problems the whole trip.

    He aint lying

    He ain't lying, :rolleyes:
    I have recently conducted a experiment with my 05 v6 and only using a quarter of a tank of gas at a time if I drive at between 50-55 use the cruise and no a/c I can get 38-39mpg. All of my miles to work and back are 98% highway and 2% city and flat roads. half way there it's a 65 speed limit and the other half 55. so I kept it under 55 and its great. I couldn't believe it myself but it is true. Before I use to keep the tank full of gas and and drive 65-66ish with that its 29mpg.
    I think also weight distribution has a lot to do too.
    ya'll watch those twinkies now! :nice:

    I thought this thing would be a little better than my SUV.

    15.085 gals @ 362.9 miles was good for a 24.057 avg MPG in 60% city and 40% hwy driving.
    It usually gets anywhere between 22 to 23+ MPG, but it broke the 24 MPG barrier for the first time. Not too bad for a manual V8. Woo hoo!

    I get 20 mpg in town and gas it every time I get a chance. On the highway I get 24 to 25 mpg. But I was getting like 17 mpg in town, and 20 on the highway before I installed my C&L intake and did the Brenspeed 93 octane tune. Not only did it transform the car into a monster, its much more fuel efficiant too. If you havent dont this yet you need to.

    I take it you didn't get your Mustang for fuel mileage:) In town my 07'GT is right at 18mpg but my hiway is right at 25mpg.If these new Mustangs had a 6spd. I'm bettin' they would pull about 30MPG.

    I'm pleased.

    07 GT - basically stock -- 19 city, 22 highway at 85 mph. First couple of tanks not this good? Better now with 3,000 miles.

    I average 17-18 mpg in town. One time I tried really hard to get the best possible mpg in town and got 19 mpg.

    On the highway I initially averaged 24 mpg, but after the addition of a K&N FIPK I jumped up to 26 mpg (both at 70 mph). That got me wondering what other mods I could do to bump up the power and mpg? Anybody noticed mpg gains with pullies or exhaust mods?

    I received a Hooker Aerochamber Axle Back for Christmas so I'll keep track of any improved gas mileage. Of course I won't know for a few months until I grow bored of the sound it makes when mashing the gas!:rolleyes:

    I've also tried driving slower a few times and I gain ~ 1.5-2 mpg for every 5 mph I slow down on the highway.

    Stock V6 auto.

    I have a 14 mile freeway loop that I can drive late at night using cruise control.

    With a K&N drop-in filter...
    At 60 MPH, I got 30.8 MPG, at 65, I got 29.2 MPG. The 65 one wasn't quite pure, I had to break a bit and then get back up to speed because of slow people on the ramps.

    I did a run with the stock filter (14k miles old) @ 60 MPH right after that, and the MPG dropped to 30.5. I figure that's good for about $20 a year or more in gas.

    Day to day driving I average 17-18 given the stop and go driving in So Cal. I'm a pretty mellow driver unless I have a reason not to be.
