Haha I had to do this. There is a huge hill on the freeway when I come back from school. Our reader can't go over 99.9 tho. Anyways with almost all city driving and I drive semi hard I get 20-21 mpg :p

I'm averaging 20ish depending on my mood lol im thinking this is because I usually go about 80mph on my way to work and sit at about 2k rpm in 6th at 80. wonder if I slowed down a bit it'd prob be better

If you could get that good of mpg, people wouldn't be buying KIAs and hybrids. And I know you're not that good of a driver to top 99.9999% of other mustang drivers by 10mpg.
Especially around the Carolina's. I've been there. Spent about 6 months bouncing around the Carolina's working. And its not the flattest terrain. So your claim is BOGUS.

Impressive. Well. Even though it only remember the last 500 miles. Are you calling me out on it? I would be happy to furnish any proof. I take photos, keep very detailed notes, and my claims are very realistic.

I would laugh if you think a 2012 v6 with my extent of aero mods and 2% increase in gearing can not achieve 32-36 mpg on the roads.

Especially since Ford got some 44 (might be less, but more than 40) mpg with a STOCK v6, no mods. So, if you are calling ME out on a claim that is 20% SHORT of a record Ford set, maybe you should check my mod list, posts here, posts on ecomodder, the fuel efficiency competition I ran in Ohio and WON, fuel log, and carefully collected, calculated and well documented data before you run your fingers about it.

Just because YOU can't do it, doesn't mean it's impossible.

Just because I can't do it? I didn't buy a Steeda Q350 for fuel mileage. And yes I'm calling you out on it. If you're not a damn rocket scientist, I don't believe in your 'aero mods'.
And if you're in the Carolina's, I surely don't believe you Unless you're going downhill when you make your 'calculations and documentations'

What are some of your mods besides aero? I'm actually pretty curious now. I read some of your other threads but can't find many of your mods besides aero mods.
And what part of Ohio? I just moved back to Louisiana from the Youngstown, Oh area in 2009. Lived in that cold tundra for 17 years

I did run the numbers. Hmm. I guess I am really full of ****, but with MY numbers plugged in, through math, at 60 mph I would get 45 mpg under those circumstances.

And 80? 28 mpg.

Hmm. So when one thinks about the fuel used to get up to speed, then add in hills and having fun, you think 32-36 is ****?

What do YOU need for proof?

Edit:

And I am in Ohio. You're in NC, then?

Well yes I do know getting up to speed kills your fuel mileage cause I have that fuel mileage gauge on my cluster at all times. And yes, 60mph is about the sweet spot too
Crest the hill, put in neutral, coast up the other side and so forth? I can see how that can raise your mpg
What gears are you running?
I run 4.10s and averaged 24.6mpg coming home from concord, nc when I bought my Steeda

And 32-36, I don't think that is bs at all. I know the V6 is fully capable of doing that. I just didnt see how they could reach over 40

Dude. Are we serious. I thought you were calling my fuel records and ME full of ****. I have never had a tank better than 36, lifetime fuel use is 31.x

I just wasn't calling him a liar. He first posted that, then as we chatted he let us know about other helping circumstances, like resetting, drafting, whatever else he said. I haven't reread this since whenever the last posts were. You quoted me and said I was full of **** and I thought you meant my fuel economy, not his. Although I did find a new way to help my mpg even further which could make some pretty wicked mpg. Not new, just new for me.

Edit:

2.7 whatevers, and my wheel diameter is 2% greater than the stock gauges. I run a scanguage ii and ultraguage and every so often I recheck my % difference in real speed and what the car thinks. Oh, and use KPH instead of MPH because it's more precise...I am pretty obsessed and particular lol

Ah ****. See I got all mixed up. I was calling bs on the other guys fuel mileage. I just went back thru this thread. And it wasn't you that I was calling bs on.

Ah, equally my bad. Sorry friend. I will admit, I am very defensive regarding my accomplishments with my mpg.

Yeah if you keep your actual documentation and records taken by pen and paper, I believe you.
But I don't believe someone that just resets the gauge and goes downhill and claims their mpg. Lol. Hell, I can make mine say 99 if I wanted.

Mine was down to 17.2 last week. Then I went to Biloxi which is about 150 miles away. And it worked back up to 19.1.
I never let my tank get below 1/4 so I don't know what I can actually get per tank

Haha, I feel like an dummy now, I was so heated. Ah, good stuff. Yea, I used to do paper but then I had big masses of crinkled old little papers, so since October ish I have pulled into the fuel station, swipe the cc, put the sprayer on the lowest setting, photo my mpg, miles, so on, then photo the gas gauge when it auto offs. No top off.

If it is ever off on one tank, it corrects on the next. Which is where the average comes into play. My only mods are aero. lower drag front bumper, front splitter, front air dam, partial belly pan, upper grille block, lower partial grille block, side splitters, rear diffuser- in order of most to least effective.

Only other mods are Roush CAI and axle backs. I have very little more power than stock, I guess full synthetic oil and larger diameter wheels may count a bit.

If it is ever off on one tank, it corrects on the next. Which is where the average comes into play. My only mods are aero. lower drag front bumper, front splitter, front air dam, partial belly pan, upper grille block, lower partial grille block, side splitters, rear diffuser- in order of most to least effective.

Only other mods are Roush CAI and axle backs. I have very little more power than stock, I guess full synthetic oil and larger diameter wheels may count a bit.
Lmao I feel like a moron.
This is my newest car I've ever owned. I've owned some nice rides. But nothing like my Steeda. So I just kinda go with the flow.
How's your rear diffuser? Is it functional? I added one but it's just for looks. It just fills up the cutout on the bumper under the plate on the 05-09. Doesn't go end to end. I'm sure the belly pan works wonders also. That's gotta cut down on drag ALOT

Is the belly pan something you fabricated?

I have to do the math with mine... My latest tank was 13.946 gallons at 152.5 miles... Averages to about 11mpg, I need to control my foot a little more lol

My rear Diffuser in its current state is essentially useless, other than looking sweet (to me). When I had my full belly pan, it may have made a difference, but it is nothing I could calculate myself. Not having a wind tunnel, just OBD instrumentation, I am a bit limited in research. But yea, having the rear diffuser is only cosmetic without a full belly pan for my vehicle. Most others would be the same, rarely do cool looking ones do anything, other than say Ford GTs, or R8s off the top of my head.

If by fabricated you mean in my scientific lab (garage) I used my advanced lifting mechanism (jack and bricks) to meticulously install (zip tie) my corrugated polymer sheet (4x8 election signs, coroplast) to the bottom of my car, then yes lol

In my build thread for my underbody I have full details, but it is EXTREMELY effective. I built it to be easy to remove in case of exhaust being too hot (regardless of my precautions) or other incident that required quick removal. Since the design worked, I have found the materials I need to build it from aluminum, I just need to pick up the sheet, get it to a lift, and get a good two or three hours under it.

At this moment, I only have 25% of my belly pan installed. I will be using coroplast up front, easy removal, easy to replace, designed to come off for oil changes.

I don't do that...I just do estimated fuel economy for circumstances of vehicle and weather/road conditions. If I had to hazard a guess, I would say that seems right. I held 79 for two hours yesterday staying under 2k.

Thats cool. Our mpg gauge is so crappy. Its rarely accurate, and is not instant
But thanks goodness for OBDii

It all depends on the year, maintenance, mods, and driver. That could be normal...lol
