Managed 21 mpg in the Cobra WOOT!

I know its nothing amazing, but its pretty darn good to have driven the car normally. What do you get gas milage wise?

Re: Managed 21 mpg in the Cobra WOOT!

I've gotten 26 going back and forth between Texas. It seems like the closer I stay to the speed limit on the interstate, the better mileage I get.

Last time out here, I got 24.5 doing 80-85 the whole way, but there were hardly any cars on the road.

Yeah,....I agree.

I managed to average 15.7 mph last week. Not too bad considering there were 3 days of rain that forced granny driving. I expect about 14ish or so this week unless we get more rain.

Re: Managed 21 mpg in the Cobra WOOT!

Last week I got 19 which i thought was good for a 32 valve motor. I also had a heavy foot around town but was polite on the freeway. my car also at the time needed tires, plugs, coolant flush, and fuel filter, so it should get better once i take care of them.
majority of my shifting was just under 5K since my rear tires were like slicks.

Re: Managed 21 mpg in the Cobra WOOT!

I usually average right about 20. If I'm on the interstate, I might get 24 or 25.

Re: Managed 21 mpg in the Cobra WOOT!

all the way back from PA, I spent $.50 more per stop than my brother, with his v-6... and that was adding in 3/4 of a tank each stop. So yeah, pretty happy with the interstate driving.

Re: Managed 21 mpg in the Cobra WOOT!

Re: Managed 21 mpg in the Cobra WOOT!

i got almost 300 miles on a full tank( you do the math), but had to fill up before the grapevine(uphill run with no gas station for about a half hour) and didnt want to risk running out.

i find that hovering at 21-2200rpm is right where she likes it.

Oh Hell on the highway as long as I stay around 65-70 I can go 380 mile on a tank. If I stay at 85 I will get 340

Re: Managed 21 mpg in the Cobra WOOT!

Mine was 480rwhp and at 80 on interstate I still got 22. Around town I didnt even bother figuring it. Wasnt too bad though. I drive 4 miles each way to work with only three redlights.
