    With my GT 5sp. manual convertable, I'm only getting 15-16 in town shifting at 5K and 21 on highway at 75 mph.

    sounds like an honest answer.

    I have 05 GT vert. auto. At steady 75 mph, engine is turning just under 2,100 rpm's. Get 30 mpg (measured by fill ups, not just computer). Also have an 01 Impala with a 3.8 V6. Just took trip to CT and back and got 31.3 mpg. Strange that a V6 would labor the same as my V8, I thought the Mustang would work less at same speeds. Almost all driving with Mustang has been highway, city seems to be around 18-19 though.

    chevy sedans(impala, malibu) are pretty good on gas on the highway. don't forget they are a whole lot more aero friendly than a mustang 'vert. your mileage in the mustang is impressive.
  • Drove 530 miles average 80 mph, 28 miles to the gallon 3.8 V-6, MT 5-speed. Going on vacation in a month will let everybody know fuel mileage again.

    Got an 03 GT with a superchips and some opther upgrades and get 27 on the highway. Don't even check around town. Who shifts at 2 grand anyway?

    With the top up, rec'd 29 mpg @ around 60 mph on a 80 mile trip - 4.0 V6 auto. What a pleasant surpise as I'd pretty much accepted having to pay out the ##$$ for extra gas when I bought it. Muscle AND economy - who'd have thunk it?
  • 06 GT 5 spd man. with 7,000 miles of 50 /50 driving = 21.4 mpg
    slow back country cruises at 60-65 mph = 30+,
  • gzgtpgzgtp Posts: 83
    30+ Wow!
    You have any bridges you want to sell?
  • I've been getting 15-16 MPG in town with a heavy foot and 21 on highway at 70 MPH on cruise control with my 5 sp. GT conv.

    top down or up? :)
  • Boy I wish I got above 20mpg even on the freeway..

    granted ive only had the car for a month but the best gas mileage ive ever gotten is right around 18 mpg

    :cry:
  • I now have 500 miles on my GT Auto. Last night I filled up and was right a 20 mpg, This was mostly Freeway.
  • You guys want gas mileage from a Mustang? I suggest you call Ford and tell them that you want the 3.6. Could you imagine Fords brand new 3.6 twin turbo V-8 diesel in the Mustang? How about 450lbs. of torque @ 2000rpm.(Cobra power)How about 25 city/35 highway? How about a programmer to bump it up to 550lbs and 40 highway? PS,this is not a dream. Ford will be making 700.000 of these babies in Europe. The dream will be to put one in a Mustang! :)

    with 200 miles on the Odometer, i'm just over half way through my first tank. Computer is reading 23+ mpg with mostly highway driving.

    Mark.
  • I've got an 05, GT, man. and I drive from my home in AZ to San Diego once about every 45 days. Almost all freeway, 325 mi. each way, and I get 23 to 25 mpg at btwn 75-80 mph. I do have a computer reflash and a cold air induction and I put 32 psi in the tires for the long trips...
  • I'm getting about 15 in city traffic (West LA - lots of sitting in rush hour) and 21-22 highway on long trips. I tried overinflating my tires to 34 lbs instead of 30 to see if that would help and it has by about 1 mpg so far. Also the ride is a little softer.
