Am getting about 23MPG with 3.73 gears at 80MPH. I have an Airaid CAI and 87S tune from BAMA. Anyone experiencing equally crappy gas mileage?

3.73's between 70 and 75mph stock.
25.8mpg but I only went about 140 miles. I imagine it would get better the longer I travel.

I drive 114 miles every weekend one way in my Shelby GT500 with a Airaid CAI, H&R lowering springs, 2,200 rpm's at an average speed of 74 I usually get right around 23.8 - 24 mpg. I don't think it his is too bad considering the 500 HP under the hood.

12' V6 w/ PP so I've got 3.31's and im stock, doing about 75mph it says 24mpg. Just broke 1k miles though so hopefully that goes up 2-3. Everytime I calculate my mpg manually though it's about 1 mpg more. Hoping this goes up!

I hear that, bud. Mine has always been higher on hand calculation, but I am definitely feeling the pinch of the steeper gears!

Of course, accelerating is so much more fun though :)

'12, 2.73 gear ratio, bone stock. I get 32 mpg highway. My combined mpg average hovers around 27. I drive 41 miles to work one way with about half of that straight highway with cruise set at 64. I use the cruise control as much as possible to increase my fuel economy. It works.

Whaaaaaaaaaaat?

I find this hard to believe, but congrats to you! Sounds like I need to talk to BAMA...
