Gas Mileage.. I am impressed...

So I finally was able to get my Stang out on the open road for my first road trip of 2400 miles, round trip..

Normally in town I see about 280 to 310 miles per tank as I have a heavy lead foot.. Damn those Red Wing shoes.. lol

So my first tank of gas gets me to 200 miles before a half a tank. Straight open road with cruise on the entire time. After another hr or so, I was sitting at 300 miles and not even to the 1/4 tank mark. I stopped at 350 miles to get some gas as the next city was about 120 miles away and I wasn't sure about any gas stations between those two points. When I filled up it was just barely past the 1/4 mark.

Throughout the whole trip was filling up around 375 to 380 with the gauge sitting between the E and 1/4 mark.

I must say, I am very impressed with this as I expected much worse.

I did take a few pics of the 200 miles on half a tank and 300 miles on 1/4 tank but decided to not post them as it doesn't really matter. HAHA

You should have calculated MPGs for us.

Re: Gas Mileage.. I am impressed...

With a 16 gallon tank assuming a rough usage of 7 gallons at half a tank I would assume around 28 mpg highway.

Re: Gas Mileage.. I am impressed...

I literally have no idea what kind of mileage my mustangs get.... the cobra goes through about a tank a month and the 90 a tank every few months.

Re: Gas Mileage.. I am impressed...

I go through a tank a week. 250 to tank. I'm averaging about 17.5 to 18.0 80% highway 20% city. I could get more if I stayed out of the gas.

Hmm.. I am pretty sure that when my gas light comes on I generally put in between 12 and 13 gallons.
