I spend around $500 per month on gas - I'm retired, drive a lot. When I back out in the morning - either car - I have a grin on my face that I wear all day.
    Sorry for this off-topic comment, but can you post pictures of your Ferrari? And please tell me it is rosso rorsa red! I loved those red Ferraris of '80s!

    Right there with you!

    Although I have been able to carry my teenage son's hockey gear in my coupe, and he's a goalie.

    Well I usually get around 13.4 to 14.1 and fill up once a week unless I find lots of excuses to go out...but I've come to realize I get the same as my F150 Super Crew w/ EcoBoost V6 that is 4x4 and I have an extra 275lbs of cap over the bed. What I don't get is the 36 gallon tank! *sigh* Mind you, my truck will never be as fun to drive as my Vagon!

    My Voupe gets better mileage than my daily driver Avalanche, city and highway.

    I just bought a 2014 Raptor with a Roush Supercharger. I thought the V was bad on gas. The truck is way worse. I'm lucky to get 10mpg if i drive conservative. The V gets approx 14 between city and hwy. It is a kick to drive. I'm far left of the tree hugers here in California driving their Prius down the carpool lanes.

    I've come to think of my Vagon as the anti-Prius and really can't wait to fire it up every morning!

    I go 60 miles a day and average 13-15 mpg. Everyday I figure $17 for gas. I've been sick working from home for a week so it's like a bonus.

    +1 Even though it gets the same mileage as my dually diesel, it is much smaller and offers less utility for what it burns.

    Re: How much gas do you use?

    Just for reference purposes, what does a V series get for mpg if hypermiled at optimal speeds on suburban roads, state highways, highways? A whole tank of hypermiling, without needing a tip of the throttle to get out of the way of a rampaging SUV driver.
    Maybe nobody ever had the fortitude to hypermile a V series, sort of like 'how many licks does it take to get to the middle of a tootsie pop' ?

    I have gotten 22-23 mpg on the highway going 50-55 mph over 20 miles.

    Re: How much gas do you use?

    I wouldn't call it Hypermiling but my best with my Auto Coupe is 19.7 mpg over 281 miles. Had a significant tail wind pretty much the whole time & zero traffic. Average speed was like 76-77 mph for the trip.

    Real gas mileage is like 12.7 around town, 15.4 mixed/average, and 18-19 highway at 9 mph over the speed limit.

    I started tracking mine about a month ago. 13.9 mpg is my average with mixed driving. Hwy speeds between 75-80mph.

    ^^^^
    Glad to see I'm not the only one using Fuelly. Your driving situation seems a lot like mine, only less icy. I think up up to 89 fillups since purchase now.

    I track mileage on Fuelly to keep track of costs, and the other interesting statistics are an interesting byproduct.

    BTW, who would hypermile a V? I shudder at the thought.
