It's not worth it to mod for better mpg. If you do end up with better mpg just think of it as an added bonus. The problem with mods like exhaust is once you get a nice exhaust, you are going to want to hear it more often and will most likely end up driving more aggressively which doesn't help the mpg. At least that's what happened to me when I put a new exhaust on mine. Just try not to worry about the mpgs and enjoy the car. It's a Mustang, it's meant to be driven aggressively.

Gosh. I live in Canada and a rough calculation in liters to gallons would indicate that I pay $5.00 a gallon. Quite wining and pay the gas or get rid of the car.

Wow, $5.00 a gallon is rough.

Getting better mileage then my 06 Sienna AWD that's a V6 front wheel drive most the time. We drove mostly highway, no inner city just suburbs. We don't know how to keep our feet of the gas. Especially since it seems we have signs on our vehicle that says cut us off regardless of speed.

I'm glad I don't live in Canada. You guys get screwed by everything. Bad taxes and gas prices.

I'm beginning to think Cali is trying to emulate our Northern Neighbor.

The best modification for fuel mileage is awareness. I used to get 25-26mpg in my Quad Cab Ram on the highway. Treat the gas pedal gently and it will reward you with fewer trips to the gas station.

Gearing and where you're using it....I have 2.73 gears in the '13 convertible and get about 31 mpg on the freeway, but around town that drops to a paltry 14-15. They kind of cheated with that...AND they used Michelin rock hard "energy saver" tires which suck at handling but give you less "rolling resistance"; so you could go that route I guess.

Agreed. I used to get 22 mpg in my 98 Expedition. I paid attention to my acceleration and how often I got on my brakes. Paid attention to my rpms as well as my mph. Also if you idle for too long will kill your mpg as well (to long doesn't mean 5 minutes. Especially if you are using the cheating gas age monitor on the vehicle.
