I got 22.7 mpg on way home doing 75 to 85mph. Not sure if new alternator has anything to do with it.. But this is best mpg I've gotten.

That pretty good. This is the best I have gotten but doing 60 on a backwoods 2 lane.

I think the only time I'll see 27mpg on that thing is as i transition into dfco, lol.

this is only possile w/o the SC kicking in--so you must have had no boost and were running like an STS

Your right was a 50 mile run at 60 mph. Was using cruise control and in 6 gear. My normal mileage is 13 to 17 mpg.

i average 14.5 on local streets --if ii regilarly get into the boost,it gets 12.5---which is what me new EXT gets all the time.My Gt500 gets 13 and the vette gets 20--but it only weighs 3200 lbs
