Re: 4.6 highway mpg

I average 17-18 most of the time. If I'm bored closer to 12. If I'm really bored about 25.

Re: 4.6 highway mpg

I would keep my windows open more, normaly they are open in town, but on the autobhan where my normal speed is 115mph(some times faster) the wind noise is just way too much.

Re: 4.6 highway mpg

After upping the boost recently, I had it on cruise control at 70 and I was getting a solid 23.1 mpg which I thought wasn't too bad. The next day I was driving a good bit more aggressively and was down at 14.9 mpg, lol. Damn that gas pedal being so fun

Re: 4.6 highway mpg

I dunno exactly... for me to go to the "local" racetrack, I left with a full tank, at the 39 mile mark, I had just over a 1/2 tank, filled up, went to the track (9 more miles), made 2 passes, got back to gas station on the way home, just over half a tank, and filled up again.
