    I'm getting about 16MPG...but it's all city/suburb driving.. stop signs... traffic lights...traffic. Mine's an auto too.. CAI, exhaust.. will all improve your MPG.

    I got over 350 miles on a tank 2 weeks ago with head wind and with only me on board. I did keep cruise control on most of the trip, however.

    I mainly do city driving and I get between 21 to 23. On the hwy I usually can get about 25 to 28 depending on weather and traffic. I have 98 GT 5 spd 3.27 gears with Bassani o/r x-pipe and catback :hail2: along with a MAC CAI ( w/ the Darkwolf Mod ). Hopefully this helps you out.
