whats your mpg?

So just wanted to see what you guys were getting w/ your current mods. I have lt's, x pipe and a flowmaster cb and I removed the snorkel from the intake. when I first got the car back from the shop after the lt and x pipe install, i was getting around 18. Now for some reason I am getting around 19.5. I think thats kinda crazy, but im not complainin. I drive mostly highway, but i also do alot of hard pulls in the car so its not like im babying it. hbu guys?

Re: whats your mpg?

When your not getting on it, mods like that usually do improve gas mileage. I have never taken the time to get mine.

i dont "use" my GT for much than going to work, no use abusing it other than getting up to freeway speeds. i get something around 150-200 miles per tank. i forget how big our tanks are, so someone else do the math. i fill up once every two weeks (i have a ~5mile commute every day).

Re: whats your mpg?

Im not doggin on the power, I just find it funny how he says he actually USES his car as if pushing harder on the gas defines how a car is used.

I think what he meant to say is that he abUSES his car :yup:

Re: whats your mpg?

i dog on my power output everyday. usually subliminally with a yawn in the morning getting on the freeway. i miss having a car where you had to be careful how you drive it.

alot of people think pushing the gas pedal to the floor is abusing the car. or at least thats the feeling i get when im stuck behind said slow *** ****ing drivers.

Re: whats your mpg?

When it was a 60/40 hwy/city mix I would get 19-20mpg. I probably average around 19 still~ I havent done the math as of late since I dont really give a crap.

Re: whats your mpg?

You could be getting more mpg because i would imagine stations are selling summer blend gas again.

Re: whats your mpg?

I average 15-19 city and 25-30 highway.

Currently have 355 miles on the tank in the car. 200 miles of highway, the rest are all city. This is on the 87 Performance tune.

Looking to hit 30 next weekend on the way up to huntsville using the MPG tune and no dogging...if I can do that.

Re: whats your mpg?

I get right around 20mpg every fill-up. If I'm doing a pile of highway driving, I usually get in the 26-27mpg range.

Kyle will love reading that...he was all worried about having extra passengers because of extra race weight and such. He will be very happy to hear you are running your weak sauce tune....

Let's see, MPG for me ranges from ~18-19 city when I drive like a human to ~12 when I drive like myself. HWY is ~25 or so I believe....12 if there is a lambo next to me.

"using the car" simply means I don't baby it. Also... dude, get off yourself. I didn't say "OMGZ, MY CAR IS TEH FASTEST"... all I said was I use it. I wasn't saying that you use your car more by pushing on the gas. And no... I don't "abuse" the car. "using the car" is kinda short for using it how it was made to be used... as was eluded to already.

Lets do it...

First of all, if you were "using" a Mustang for what it was supposedly made for... I'd see new track times from you every weekend. Id see threads like "Supercharging my car" or "Going full coilover setup". But I don't, and with that I'll go out on a limb and say that maybe you consider "using" the car driving it daily and toting yourself around Iowa City like the bad *** you are. I dont know why you think I'm on myself. I wasn't the one that brought up how to properly use a vehicle, so again... if you're going to buy something up from the v6 (which seems to fit your driving style better) then by all means do it. But don't tell me you use your like its supposed to be used when you have no dyno numbers, no track times, hardly any modifications, and nothing else to show how well the car is used. If the 90,000+ odometer reading is how you define "use" then I'll shut up right now, but until then... all I see is a someone with an ego boost because of the two characters that say "V8" all because you press down on the gas pedal more than someone else.

Re: whats your mpg?

I get about 13 mpg, and I have a 30 min drive to work, and 15 min. drive to the girls house. The drive to work is about half city half interstate, and the drive to the girls is all city. I have been driving it pretty conservative lately (don't usualy let the revs get past 2k unless I am on the interstate) so it is probably better, I just haven't had the chance to calculate it, I probably get about 15 or 16 now. Funny thing is, highway or city, I get pretty much the same.

That would be the correct definition from when the car was created...and what it has moved into again.

I was just trying to figure out how he claims he uses his car more than all of us, but has nothing to show for it.

It is very possible...but I hear he judges his size with the aid of a magnifying glass....so....it's hard to say for sure.
