Yeah idk why mine only gets 200 I don't even beat on it and it's only got exhaust and a cai and I'm pretty sure it has stock gears altho the guys I bought it from said it has 3.73s

You still have the o2 sensors or a tune? Running the generic stock tune without the o2s could seriously reduce mileage


You know that warm and fuzzy feeling? That means something bad is about to happen...

That could explain it, hard to compare mpg without the active fuel trimming an o2 provides. But I'm sure you got a bit more pull with the tune and no cats!

I'm around 200 usually, but I don't run the tank dry either. My fill ups are usually between 9 to 11 gallons. That number of miles per tank goes up obviously with more highway driving. I've been up to 300 miles before.

That's one reason why I stuck with 3.55's. I like going on the highway at a good clip. Lol

Miles per tank

Most I got is 340ish miles on one tank filled it all the way to the cap and ran it down till I was less than a gallon in the tank. But that was on a trip I funded and was trying to save as much money as possible with cruise control on the whole time at 80mph. If I'm usually in town I get 300.

I want to get a T56, the one with the .5 overdrive. Even with 4.10s that'll put me damn near 2k rpm at 80mph.

Youre getting 200 miles on a tank? You need to start driving like a man. Shouldn't ever be getting more than 120-150 miles per tank. Do you even have a supercharger or cams or anything?

I normally get 275 per tank, but I don't ever let it below 1/4 tank, it typically averages 21-22 MPG mostly highway/ 18-19 city. I agree with Azure, you have a lead foot, which is easy to have in our cars.

You said on ramps, are you talking about interstate-highway, that doesn't help either because optimal speed/fuel economy is 55-60mph instead of 70-80mph. I did mostly regular state-highway driving (55mph) also braking plays a bigger role in mpg than people give credit for (if you just gas and brake with no coasting, that cost mpg's.) I only use my brakes for stop lights/signs, super-sharp curves, and people who pull out in front of me...sometimes.

I get about 200 miles on a tank. I also drive 5 miles in the morning of pure, dense traffic. And when I'm not stopped or at speed, I'm most likely pedal to the metal.
