We traded in one of our two CTSs on a 05 C6 Corvette on saturday. I have been driving it quite a bit since then and find myself amazed at the mileage.21 mpg around town and 31 mpg HWY. Thats figured to a puny US gallon too...

not really any different from our CTS.

Surprising what can be done with electronic engine management and tall overdrives/torque convertor lockup. BUT, let it all hang out and put your foot through the firewall and all gas mileage bets are off...............in any car. I daresay that a crazy driver could even ruin (relatively) the gas mileage of a Prius.

My 02 C5 6-speed averaged 25 MPG. I did 80% freeway driving and kept my foot out of it when commuting.

Screw the C6. I want a nice, cheap, V-12 6-speed Ferrari. Coffee colored leather in 3-coat metallic emerald. Fitted luggage. $28,000 tops. Gotta get 31 mpg, though.

Even in the Trans Am with the Cam and a little bit richer condition incase I ever want to spray the laughing gas. I get right around 28 MPG on the Highway (3.42 gears, 6 speed) and right around 20 in town, if I stay out if.
Last tank of gas I averaged just around 25 and a half mpgs.
Technology is wonderful thing.
