    We don't need snobs here. I expect this kind of attitude out of Rolls Royce or Bentley owners.

    Not everyone that's buying a GenII CTS-V has a $500k/year salary, I know I don't, and so yes, for a daily driver, MPG is definately a valid, legitimate concern.

    Take that shit to the Ferrari forums...

    Mystical_Ice you are exactly right. It will be premium only, fuel costs are rising, and not to mention the lower mpg is, the more GG tax you will pay up front.

    If gas mileage is an issue to you, then you shouldn't seriously consider this car. Is that better? I hope rewording it this way will make my sentiment less offensive to you. How could a 4200 lb sedan with 556 hp not get shitty gas mileage?

    We all hate filling up too often due to poor mileage, and we all like keeping the money in our pocket rather than shelling it out to a gas company. But I want this car and don't care how bad fuel mileage it gets because I will buy it even if it gets 5 miles to the gallon. I know many of you feel the same way. I only drive 8000 miles a year. I don't think there will be too many buyers that put 20,000 miles a year on a car like this. Anyone putting up numbers like that need a CTS-V as a second car.



    If someone really wants this car and can afford the $70,000 which is what it will cost after taxes, or the $1000 per month on a lease, then the gas mileage really won't make enough difference to cause a buyer to buy a car with better mileage.


    My original statement should have been-Anyone seriously considering this car shouldn't care, because they know the gas mileage will be pretty poor.

    Gasoline is still relatively cheap and I don't care about MPG. Let Priu$ drivers worry about that.

    Quiz Time:

    1. How many "standard size" bottles of water does it take to make a gallon?
    2. Is bottled water less or more expensive per gallon than gasoline?
    3. Which one comes out of a municipal water supply?*
    4. How many V owners will scare themselves shitless the first time they turn off traction control and try to "impress" some friends?

    *And people think oil companies are making all the money.

    IIRC, Oil company profits were at about 10% last year. That is really low compared to some other big companies that we all buy from.

    I don't understand how mileage can be of any concern with this car... I mean, what would you consider 'good' mileage? The ZR1 is predicted to get 14/20? Even if the V managed this, thats still crappy mileage!

    Seems not many complain about buying over priced tap water in a plastic bottle yet are concerned about V fuel bills.

    America is broken. Don't worry, one is promising "change."

    Start handing it over in '09.

    MPG doesn't bother me so much as Miles Per Tank (MPT?)... Obviously all things being equal, I'd rather have more fuel effeciency and cheaper gas, but the most annoying thing to me is having to stop at a gas station every ~200 miles. Let's hope they put a bigger tank than the standard ~16 gallon in the CTS (maybe ~20) so we can get a 300+ mile range out of this bad boy.

    Yeah, that's what I'm saying. I believe the appropriate term is "cruise range," at least that's what the mags use.
