In my other car ( 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse 3.0L V6 ) I was around 220 at half a tank. I hit around 200 at half a tank when I first got my stang. Now I'm in the process of trying to get the stang to that point.

I heard that. I usually get 18 but it's all in town. I finally got to let my girl loose on the freeway.

I'm lucky to get 225 mpt if I keep my foot out of the carb. That's why my other car is a Mini Cooper 390 mpt in town 450 highway.

I have an '09 V6 5 spd and get 330 per tank.
My mods are geared to mileage.
They are:

K&N drop in filter,
Screamin' Demon coil pack,
Taylor Street wires,
Gap set to .065,
Steeda TBS
Magnaflow true dual exhaust.

Oh I forgot...I also have used full synthetic oil since the car was new and clean the TB several times a year in the garage. Every little bit helps! LOL!
