    Used to own one. I believe I was getting around 23-24 on the interstate and about 19 around town here in Fayetteville. In NYC it would drop down to around 16.

    To get a perspective, with my v I get about 21-22 interstate, 16 around town in Fayetteville and damn near single digits in NYC.

    And at $4.10 a gallon it gets pricey but it's worth it. Any high performance car driven the right way would cost ya. I just look at mine. Enjoying it in my driveway. Looks great!!

    Still hoping for Kuwait and Iraq to become part of the US. Gotta get some return on the investment.

    I was referring to the money we spent and people we lost there. Gotta be worth something.
