I hate you all -.- I get 12mpg. If I'm lucky and drive like a grandma I can get close to 14mpg, and that's going 2-3mph under the speed limit

Just took a 1400 mile round trip from Tacoma Wa to Reno Nv. 60 to 80 MPH with an average MPG of 28.2. What a fun drive. Hot August Nights is a must see for anyone who likes cars.

I can easily get 24-26 in the city and 30+ on the highway and that with 3.31s

The 2011 - 2014 mustangs depends on how you drive. If you are a city driver you will see 17 - 20 mpg, if you are a strictly on hwy then you are looking at 23 - 28 mpg. But then again it all depends on how heavy your foot is. You can get AWESOME MPG if you drive like a grandma.

A lot of people don't consider that city driving in areas like California or high populated states and cities have a completely different type of city driving then in others like Virginia, Kentucky or Georgia. Here in California city driving is constant stop and go, hitting stop signs and lights every 100-500 yards with a lot of sitting at lights and wasting gas. It's acceleration that drains gas. All you guys out in different areas have city driving that's hardly stop and go at all. These make the difference in our gas mileage. I get 19-20 from city driving in LA county with 3.55s.

2014 V6 here.
I'm getting about 25 city, 31-35 hwy.
I'm pretty sure my mpgs jumped about 2mpg after installing a CAI (no tune)
But ultimately, it all depends on how heavy your foot is.

I drove 10 miles city 40mph and 10 miles freeway 70mph this morning. Kept it below 2k rpm the whole time. Damn my foot could barely touch the gas pedal and it was boring as hell. Might as well been driving a VW Bug. The gauge said 26mpg.

I can't imagine driving around town in a manual trans under 2k all day. If I was driving a stick I'd always be up in the power band.

I live in South Florida where traffic is just like that, stop and go every minute. I average 23-24 100% city driving. You just gotta know how to conserve fuel. Coasting in neutral, shifting below 2,000 rpm, coasting to red-lights, etc etc.

That would just be a waste of gas. Might as well shift under 2k rpm when it's constant stop and go traffic. When it's cruising time, sure I'll get the rpm's up quite a bit. But around town in the morning there is no room for that.

It must be different traffic because I keep my auto under 2k & coast as much as I can & I get maybe 17mpgs & that's freeway/street traffic combined! There's not much room to coast when u start moving & 2 seconds later u come to a complete stop!

Well I have a manual, and I've been driving manual transmissions for years. So I guess I just know how to get the most out of it. South Florida traffic really is horrible. I'm talking bumper to bumper in the morning when I go to work. But I've been dealing with it for 5+ years now so I've grown accustomed to it.

I have driven in San Diego, Anaheim, Orlando and surrounding areas, Los Angeles, Oakland and San Francisco...
There's something unique about California traffic. Like "EFFED UP", unique. Those are the major cities other than Phoenix and Las Vegas...but they REALLY stood out. San Fran was by far the worst inner city traffic I experienced. And LA was a STAND STILL on thefreeway... nothing free about that.

I think 65mph is right about the sweet spot. It's definitely more tempting to gun it with a manual.
And def agree with the guys below about driver behavior being the most important. Coasting, nuetral, keeping it under 2k rpms, smooth accel, etc. Those are key.

For me its next to impossible to shift before 2k. I find it hard to shift before 3k. Lol

Have only had my 2013 V6 Pony for a month. Getting 17 mpg city, but I have been doing a lot of around town nonsense. Hoping to get it higher when the novelty wears off.... hoping the novelty never wears off!

my wife drives our 2012 automatic to work in heavy traffic, " and makes to work with a heavy foot" she averages 19 to 20 mpg. i drive it i get around 22 to 24 mpg around town.
we took a trip on I-81 over the weekend, my average speed was 80 mph at 2000 rpm. my gas milage was average 30 mpg, the best our stang has done.
i noticed in the past our highway milage started coming up after the first oil change a few months back.

I think I have only once looked at my gas mileage. Or course it's just 1 year and 1 month with a total of 2863.2 miles.

Why would I need a lesson? I get excellent fuel economy on my way to work, what's wrong with that? Whenever there is room to play, I will rip through the gears. Not like I always drive like a grandma. It is impossible to have some fun when going to work when it's bumper to bumper traffic and constant stop and go. I don't need any lessons lol....all I was saying is some people just don't know how to get good fuel economy.

just to clarify when I say city I don't mean a 1 horse town with only 1 stop sign.

That doesn't qualify as a city. haha
