    MPG Check

    Just checking , I certainly did not purchase this car for economical purposes. However, I have put on almost 1000 miles and ran a few tanks of 93 . My average city only no highway yet is 11 on the nose. This is about right , right ?? Also bone stock no mods yet...

    I got 22.8 mpg on my 09 V cruising 70 mph. I had 26,000 miles on it. Mods were Magnaflow cat back and a modified stock air box with stock air filter. On that trip, I think it was around 200 miles.

    Re: MPG Check

    12-13 mostly city driving... 1600 miles on the car. 570rwhp, so I have most, but it is all how you drive it. I have an automatic, and I drive it in Sport Mode all the time, so even when cruising, it will shift later which is not going to help MPG.

    Airaid CAI and I averaged 19.4 (calculated with actual math and by the in car mpg display) on a 400 mile trip. I also had about 30 of those miles in town....and really got into it about 5 times in town. 91 octane fuel.

    Re: MPG Check

    13.9 MPG avg over 15k miles. Almost all city miles, I might get on the expressway but I never behave. I got 21 mpg driving on a 7 hours trip.

    I use fuelly to calculate the milage, and its dead on with the computer.

    Re: MPG Check

    The best fuel economy to date was when I went out of town in my wife's SUV and left the V parked in the
    garage! My best MPG avg was 17 combined city/highway, but the norm is about 13. It is just so
    difficult not to mash the go pedal at least once a day. Sometimes I think my fuel needle moves faster than
    my boost gauge.

    Re: MPG Check

    I've seen 20+ on 60-70mph highway stints.

    Otherwise 15-16mpg combined 40/60 is normal for me.. 'normal' meaning I drive enough that I've never engaged CAGS, the first time was on the dyno this past saturday acutally.

    I have been into the lower teens, or even single digits in super-heavy city and on un-naturally aggressive days. 11 seems normal given either car is only rated for 12-14, and I've never been able to give it so little gas that it engages CAGS..
