MPG update NEW NUMBERS!

227.6 miles, 8.2 gallons of gas

27.76 mpg at 104K miles on the odometer.

Not too shabby.

I got suspension work to do this week then it's time to start fabricating a belly pan. I am shooting for 30 mpg. Hmm I wonder if I replaced the original O2 sensors if that would pick up a few MPG.

OK new mpg numbers.

Only thing I did this past week (since the last numbers) was to replace all the rubber bushings in my rear suspension with polygraphite. The A/C was not run any substantial amount.

252.3 miles.

8.1 gallons of 87 octane gasoline.

31.15 mpg.

Now I start making a belly pan.

Steve

To share an average day in the life of me and my mustang, today i was next to a camaro and trying to get him to race me, but he wouldnt, just revved his eng a little. So i kept getting next to him and punching it a bit, then my low fuel light came on and i pulled into a 76 gas station and he passed me up

I doubt the bushings had much to do with it, but that's the only thing I did, other than not run the AC as much.
