I am now getting around 315 miles on a full tank of gas

I am writing this thread because I've read about a lot of v6's getting less than 250 mpg which is what I use to get. Just last week I changed my plugs, wires, oil/filter, and fuel filter. Before I had done this it would take my car a half a tank to go 145 miles at mostly highway speeds with me not being a slow *** by any means.

This time I took the trip and made the 145 mile trip only using less than a quarter tank of fuel from a full tank, was there for 3 days drove around a little each day and made it back into town at 312.9 miles on my trip when my gas light came on.

Just some insight to anyone who has poor mpg. This is assuming the O2 sensors, fuel pump, and injectors are in working order. My fuel pump was replaced last year.

Plus being supercharged doesn't help mileage I think...

I don't know about the 00's but I did a 1990 thunderbird super coupe motor swap to my 96 and she gets better then the stock 3.8 I took out and then even better when I put a 95 5 speed in it. All city I get on average 375 400. And highway 430 to 480. And when I took it to my sisters some 6 and a half hours away 98% freeway I had gotten almost 38 mpg. I know northern fuel has less ethanol then city gas. Or maybe the high performance airflow sensor. And my o2's are junk hahah and I'm no Sunday driver. So?

Never gauge it by how long it takes you to get to 1/4 tank or 1/2 tank or whatever. It is nowhere near accurate..

Fill the tank
Drive X amount of miles
Fill the tank again
Divide how many miles you drove by how many gallons you filled

That is the most accurate way to determine it. Basing it off placement of the needle won't get you anywhere near accurate numbers.

That's very true but i have a close relationship with my fuel gauge if she sit about here I know I can drive another 50 miles and so on.
