15.7

but thats not a realistic view what you should do
1.Fill your tank
2.Reset your Tripometer
3.drive around
4 fill back up and see how many gallons you used

To find out your mpg, when you fill up, divide how many miles you drove on the tank by the gallons of gas you put in, and bingo, your mpg.
I did this today...234 miles, 14.3 gallons, so.. I got 16.36 mpg

I usually get 240 miles on 1 tank, isn't that kinda low for a 95 V6? It's auto by the way and I try to baby it just to see if it will get more miles per tank, but no.

I gonna change the fuel filter as soon as it warms up from low 20s we got now and spark plugs.


Please help

Change fuel filter, spark plugs, clean off your MAF, and ditch that Y pipe if you still have it. You should average around 22-25 on babying it. At least I do

I'm ditching the Y-pipe as soon as it gets here. Ordered a X-pipe last night

I average 18 - 19 mpg when babying it. Don't pullies give you better milage?

Maybe 1 or 2 mpg..not enough to really make a difference. I see pullies as one of those mods you do when you're having a slow month but still wanna do something to the stang lol

You have a 5 speed or auto? Also, how many miles does your car have?

It's low 20s outside, I GOT A SLOW MONTH!!!


Guess I'll get pullies soon, it's better than not having them


It's a auto with 88.850 miles


Not sure what you pay per gallon there, but I pay average $5.5 per gallon over here. So every gallon saved is a good thing to me

I have a 96, V6, auto with 108,000 miles on it.

I regularly get 27 mpg with it once getting 30+.

It's almost all stock, other than a 2 inch drop and wider than stock tires.

Almost all of my mileage is highway. 300+ miles per tankful is not a problem. Someone has issues if they are getting mid teens for mileage.

fill up reset trip odoemeter and drive then when you fill back up see how many gallons it takes, divide that into the miles you went.

the 8.8 would probobly bust with slicks too, you would have to get a unit with more splines the stock t-lok is 28, a 31 auburn carrier with 31 spline axel shafts will hold them very good on an 8.8.
