Haha I get about 8-9 in town with ZERO flooring but that's because it's running so rich and my damn wide band took a dump so I can't tune it since I cammed it.

I get between 12-14. I also have just a little motor work done and the big cams don't help. I also didn't buy a mustang to see what my MPG's are like. Keep it on the mat

I'm averaging 18mpg in my Mach1 w/ mainly city with some highway mixed here and there. By city, I mean there are some county roads in there too. This is spirited driving with a few track visits mixed in.

I have a question about 4.10 gears.. I have an 98 v6 and wanting some gears soon but not sure wich ones, I heard 4.10 is good with auto's but I also want something that's not going to make the rpms high while driving on highways

Well there are 3.90 gears. I thought about getting 3.90 but then I thought why the heck not would I get 4.10 so I did. And I don't regret it at all.

You can get 3.73 to or haha well 4.30's I'd suggest 3.90 gears if your just really don't want it at higher rpm's on the highway. Really to me 4.10 are not bad at all

My GT gets about 16-18 with a lot of city driving. My BMW got about 23 on the same style of driving. But on highway I get a lot better. My BMW runs 3.5k rpm @70 and the mustang runs 1.85k rpm @70.
