    Whats the absolute worst gas mileage you've ever gotten in your stang, for whatever reason? Doesn't matter if it's 100% city or what. Lets just see the numbers (and your mods if they're not in your sig).

    100% city, driving like a maniac, I got 8mpg about a month ago.

    Though even driving very conservatively in the city, I can't do much better than 13. Its not until I hit the highway for long periods of time that I get in the upper teens, low 20's.

    The worst I got was 15mpg. Both city and highway. That's when I first got my 3.73 gears though:D I had a lead foot for a while but now I drive conservatively.

    Wow. My Cobra's worst mileage is 20. I always get between 20 and 25. Of course most of my miles are freeway.

    Now my Capri has seen 8MPG.

    Worst here is a cool 8mpg. Best I've seen was 27mpg all highway, with the cruise locked on 80 the whole tank.

    150 miles to a tank of gas. Basically i was driving like a jerk revving out each gear with the A/C on.



    Best ever so far was 325ish miles to a tank. No A/C, 5th gear all highway, cruise control when i can, drive like i'm stepping on an egg
