Mpg

I've been getting around 17 mpg on my 06 gt. Is that typical because I feel like I should be getting more. What do you guys get?

Sounds good, to many variables to compare to anyone else's mpg tho

I call a big bs on that one...unless you have a 5 speed with 2.73's and a smooth underbody pan. The computer is fairly inaccurate, especially in short distance readings (1000 or less miles)

Just drove from central Florida to St. Louis and both down and back averaged 28. I do have a 5 speed go the speed limit and live on cruse control. And usually got just below or just over 400 miles per fill up.

I'm getting around 14 in the city and around 21 on the highway. Keep in mind, I've had the car for a month, so it's still new and very fun to tromp on. I know from the one longer (2 hour relatively flat highway cruise) I could have achieved 25 pretty easy, but I found myself running it up to 90 too many times. I know I can get better mileage and the car is perfectly capable of EPA estimates, maybe someday I'll have the discipline, maybe someday....

What mods do you have? Anything different about it? The most I've gotten is about 360 miles to a full tank and I was on fumes by the time I fueled up in the middle of BFE Kansas on the way to Colorado.

No just an axle back exhaust. I got the oil changed right before and a new air filter. I just drive it like a grandmother I guess. At least on long trips. My friend has the same year and all and he gets it to when he drives the speed limit and stays off the gas. I guess that's key.

I average anywhere between 17-20 depending how I drive, my daily commute is mostly Interstate & highway though.

I get 21-23 MPG. 50% city and hwy.

Got SLP loudmouth 1 axle back, bama tune, and CAI.

The tune and CAI together improved my MPG by 2 or 3.

I get 21 mpg when driving it hard and I've actually gotten up to 24 mpg when shifting just before 2k RPMS.
