Default MPG...wow...

Just did my 1st test of my MPG and it was bad! I only went 203.8 miles with 13.429 gallons of gas which is like 15.2 MPG lol. The best thing is I drive it pretty soft and I didn't bring it up to even 5k rpm...and up to 4k just one time. I'm guessing it's the AC being on this whole time with how hot it is.

Well, just wanted to share. I'm going to do another test and see how I do. Anybody else do this sort of thing?

I've been getting really good gas milage with mine, I've only had it for two weeks and I'm really impressed. I went about 315 miles on a tank, that included passing cars and doing 2 100-115 MPH runs. I drive a mostly highway though and most of the time I'm driving pretty easy. I'm glad I got the manual tranny, I can take it easy for good MPG but then when I reach my favorite straight-away or fun part of the road, I can instantly change my driving habits and rev the hell out of it.

I usually get about 160-200 miles per tank, I fill up at about 13 gallons. BUt thats because I like the acceleration I really dont baby my car. I once got 23 miles per gallon on a road trip, with the AC with all my mods and 4.10's. I was amazed by that one.

Just filled mine today, '99 automatic with 4.10's and wide tires. 17.3 with a mix but mostly city. My "highway" driving is rural with a stop sigh every mile or 2. I am going to se if I can get a tank trying to be as careful as I can and see what it will get. 18 was what it got when I first got it and it was stock. mark
