Gas milage increase

Hey guys, before I talk about what's going on with my stang I just want to let you all know what kind of driver I am..So I pretty much use my stang for my daily commute to school and work, I'm putting about twenty miles on everyday (city) and I'm not the shy kind of driver. I rev my engine,race when I can .you know burns outs ,showboating..ect. The works. Iv had my stang, a 2000 v6 for the past three years and the only engine mod I have added is a cold air intake. So, I have always gotten into the habit of resetting my trip everytime I fill up on gas and i have always gotten around 250mpg,Now the interesting part is for the past three months I have started to get 330mpg on one fill! Mind blowing huh. At first I thought I forgot to reset my trip , but this has been consistent for three months. I always use the same pump at the same Hess gas station. Think there could be something they've added to the gas? I'm not complaining but it has me curiousss. And I would like to know if anyone else has experienced this?

I'm sure you mean miles per tank, not mpg. And that sounds like pretty normal gas consumption. I get between 350 and 500 km per tank depending how much I get on it. I average roughly 10litres/100km in the city and 8l/100km on the highway.
