I just googled the MPG rating of the 2014 Mustang, and this link still has it at 31 Highway (2014 Mustang V6 with the 2:73 rear gear):

I just asked a sales guy here and he pulled out an official booklet that stated 2013 v6 mustang gets 45mpg and 42mpg, I'm assuming auto vs manual. He stated thats in perfect driving conditions. Wtf? Never heard of that! Maybe those are Canadian gallons. Lol.

Well, I updated my last post to add a link from the U.S. department of energy, and they still have the 3.7 V6 Mustang equipped with an automatic at 31 MPG (29 with a standard transmission). I'm also assuming this with the 2:73 rear differential gearing.

Would like to see that "official booklet" that tells how the MPG increased by 10 MPG within one year using the same drive train!

Have the westernly winds gotten stronger, pushing the car along to improve the MPG?

Eh... Do Canadians do MPG ratings different from us? That's practically downhill coasting.

---------- Post added at 12:09 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:08 PM ----------

Then again, I can see gaining 5mpg or so if you guys don't have ethanol blends. That **** is bad for normal road use.

We actually have a 10% ethanol blend also. I'm not thrilled about it either.

The international mile is defined by international agreement. It is defined to be equal to 1,760 international yards (one yard = 0.9144 m ) and is therefore equal to 1,609.344 meters (1.609344 km, exactly). A kilometer is = 0.621371192 miles. Mile is used in the US , the United Kingdom and in some other countries (limited use in Canada, New Zealand, Australia). The statute mile = 5,280 feet (or about 1,609 m), or 63360 inches

Now I understand how they come up with 41 MPG....it's the Canadian measure of a mile, and not the U.S. version.

So, 30 U.S. Miles = 48.280 Canadian miles

Conversion Chart / Table
mi to km Conversion Chart / Table: km to mile Conversion Chart / Table:
mi = km
1.0 = 1.609
2.0 = 3.219
3.0 = 4.828
4.0 = 6.437
5.0 = 8.047
6.0 = 9.656
7.0 = 11.265
8.0 = 12.875
9.0 = 14.484 mile = km
10 = 16.093
20 = 32.187
30 = 48.280
40 = 64.374
50 = 80.467
100 = 160.934
500 = 804.672
1000 = 1609.344
5000 = 8046.720 km = mi
1.0 = 0.621
2.0 = 1.243
3.0 = 1.864
4.0 = 2.485
5.0 = 3.107
6.0 = 3.728
7.0 = 4.350
8.0 = 4.971
9.0 = 5.592 km = mile
10 = 6.214
20 = 12.427
30 = 18.641
40 = 24.855
50 = 31.069
100 = 62.137
500 = 310.686
1000 = 621.371
5000 = 3106.856


I learned something today. Thanks for the Post!

You are correct. 1 imperial gallon is 1.200 US gallons.

Lol, a whole new meaning to "miles" per gallon. Impress your friends by giving your Canadian MPG stats.

Always liked that color of blue that you have Azure. If they (the dealer where I bought my Mustang) would have had one the way I wanted it, I would have bought it.

So, it's liters per kilometer, not miles per gallon in Canada!

This is like trying to understand the red and blue lines of Hockey!!!

Perfect driving condition is a flat level no hills road, 273 gears about 42 mph in 6th gear. And you might see 45mpg. Sorry but your dealer is an idiot!!!

Ah its not the dealer, if you read the other post you would know where it came from. "Rolleyes" It comes from the 2013 fuel consumption guide from the Canadian government. It was determined that why it was posted at 42mpg because Canada us imperial gallons and not US gallons. I still get now where near their advertised mpg but I starting to think my right foot has something to do with that! Lol

I got upto 35mpg whilst driving from Quebec to PEI. That's without resetting the mileage.
I think it's possible. No traffic, 8 hours of driving with no top lights etc...
