My stock 86 got 23 mpg even at 20 some years old. It's sad to see with all the technology and such that all these new modded stangs can barely keep up in the mpg department.


Currently- 1986 2.3L lx notchback, conversion to SVO 2.3L turbo automatic notchback.

18mph all day long. Most of my driving is city and I can't keep my foot out of it. I bet if I were to baby it I could get it up to 20, but where's the fun in that?

Its pretty funny, when you look at the horsepower of the 1986 GT vs the 1985 GT, the '85 was carbed and the 86 was EFI.

Guess which one made more horsepower? lol. You guessed it! Carb!!
And the 86 even had a revised engine and upgraded to H pipe exhaust

I get 24mpg with mostly easygoing HWY miles with 87 BAMA tune.
With high test gas and the same easy driving I get 25-27mpg.

BUT, when I tune to 93 BAMA race tune, i usually drive way faster and return 19-21mpg.

Bahahajahaha! No.

I'm trying to not be offended...no, but I don't go past 65 with my engine on, unless I am engine braking. I always use the right lane, unless there are center lanes, then I keep the furthest right without impeding merging or exiting traffic. Only breaking 65 for coasting. GGP last year on the road course hit 90, and even with the basically off road course ripping off most of my underbody (and dragging it half the way), we held mid 30s on the road course. It was rough, because speed limits were 35-50, most of the roads were not paved, no signs, road markings. I was expecting to hear banjos...

I wish I could do that, but sadly in Socal people go anywhere from 55-80 in the right lanes, or any lane, especially when you're just cruising. Atleast thats from my experience.

Agreed, I take my Mustangity (the act of utilizing a Mustang the way it should be) out on corners. 25 MPH max? Sure, 50 will be fine...I am more of a corner guy.

I use Fuelly to keep track of my mileage... right now, it shows the average mileage at 24.4 MPG, with the highest at 29.9 MPG. I do a lot of short (7 mile) drives to work and back, with the occasional long road trip. I'm pleasantly surprised at how good the mileage is when making good time on the highway.

I do not know how you guys are achieving those numbers written on the factory sticker. My average is around 14mpg in city with many traffic lights, according to the road computer.

I don't have a lot of stop & go driving, which helps my average. However, I do enjoy the occasional WOT blast on the highway entrance ramps (ya gotta be up to speed to merge safely, right? ) which isn't going to help the mileage. I do tend to drive smooth as a long-time habit, but I'm not a hyper-mileage driver by any stretch of the imagination. I'm not above dropping a couple of gears to make a quick pull back up to cruising speed after clearing slow traffic on the highway. Even during aggressive, high rpm/low gear driving through the twisty backroads, mileage will be in the low 20's. I've never seen anything close to 14 MPG, even when caught up in big city traffic... I don't know what to tell ya.

In city I generally average 23-26 and pure highway usually between 31-35. These cars can get great Mpgs just not as much fun

Even when I tried hard saving some more fuel the best I could get was 16mpg. Then I told to myself, for saving 2mpg, I am not gonna bother and change my driving habit. I wish there was a data log about average speed then it would make sense to compare with other people. And their city driving definition might be different then mine.

I don't drive much in the city, 99% of my driving is highway. I live about 2 miles from the highway with one stoplight that is usually green and when I get off the highway to go to work the first light is the hospital I work at. When I do take my car around town for errands my mpg can drop to about 25.4. I do drive it as much as possible, Im just more of a home body and really don't go anywhere unless my wife is dragging me around town.

I calculate my average speed by resetting the timer at each fill up. So if I spend 14 hours with the key on, and travel 1400 miles, I know my average speed is 100 MPH. Usually it is closer to 35 MPH, about 5-10 5 mile trips a week, usually I will spend 14-16 hours driving on a tank, 550-650 miles a tank- spring to fall, with mileage peaking in the summer.

But then again, racing up to speed, or holding higher RPMs in gear, can show a higher average speed while still using a lot of fuel.

2014 here all stock except for a filter change. I am at 23 mpg of mixed driving and not a ton of stop and go traffic here. The wife and I went on a road trip of about 1500 miles and while on the interstate with the cruise set at 70 we averaged 33 mpg and this was through mountains and windy roads.

Avg 23 mpg with half city and half highway. I do brag about my V6 in I made a 100 mile highway trip and averaged 85-90mph the entire way and averaged 29.9 mpg. Gotta love the V6 mustangs!

If you set it on cruse control you'll get around 34+ MPG. I believe 60-65 mph is the sweet spot for high mpg.

I set cruise on 65 and don't take it off for my commute. Rarely do I have to speed up or pass. Good ole county highways. I still haven't broke 26. Almost finished with My second tank.

Have you reset the mpg after each fill up? If you haven't then it'll be averaging what you've driven since last reset.

The way these guys are getting 30+mpg is by resetting the mpg calculator when they get on the freeway. I only hit 30mpg once because I reset it right before I got on the freeway for a 22 mile trip to work. I'm averaging 25.8 with a heavy foot. Most of that is freeway, with very little city driving. I do take the occasional drives to the grocery store wich don't help with mpg as its only a block away. Honestly I don't even care about that anymore, I'm just enjoying the car now. It's not nearly as fun driving like an old lady as it is like a 16 year old that just got his driver license.
