You have a 16 gallon tank. I have a V-6 automatic, convertible and get 25mpg highway miles driving between 65 and 70 mph. Your mileage should improve as you break in the motor. Hope that helps.

Is anyone running their Mustangs with performance air filters?

Last tank was 29.4 mpg with 20% interstate, 60% rural, 20% city.
Tank before was 30.9 mpg with 40% interstate, 40% rural, 20% city.
Tank before that was 28.5 mpg with 40% city.
Car has had O2 sensor bad since I bought it. CEL has always been on since I bought it. I bought a sensor and tried to get old one out but couldn't, so I disconnected it 3 tanks ago. Mpg is up about 1 since I disconnected the bad sensor. I have to take a vacation day to get sensor fixed by a shop so I have been putting it off. Based on my mileage, will I see a slight increase in mileage to 31 or 32 hwy if I put in the new sensor? Will the new left bank sensor just cause the one in the right bank to then be considered bad by the computer and I'll need to spend another $200 or so. Am I hurting the cat converter by driving with the bad sensor?

I will be picking up my newly purchased '95 GT with 14451 miles on it, on Oct. 8th. It is a 5speed totally stock w/17" wheels. I am hoping against hope that I will see around 25mpg on the drive from Montana to Texas. I'll be sure to post it here since I always keep track of mileage (a hobby is all). I have a '95 Bounder 35ft. motorhome with a 460 EFI engine and manage 9mpg 60mph which I consider pretty good.
Glad to join the group and look forward to posting.

I have a 2000 v6 automatic, have put almost 10k miles on it. I runs great but gets 20-21,,,, doesn't seem to matter how fast or slow I drive, city/hwy with or without the a/c on, it's the same. Strangely enough, it seems to get 21 if I go mostly 85-95mph.

#39 of 40 03 Cobra Highway Mileage
Oct 27, 2008 (9:28 am)
My Sunday car is an 03 Cobra- pullley, intake, MAC exhaust, SCT tuned. I am pushing around 500-515 crank. I drove it from Charlotte NC to Myrtle Beach SC and got an average of 22mpg on the highway. As long as I stay out of boost it gets pretty good mileage on the highway. In the city...well, thats a different matter!

I have a '67 convertible, the most heavy bodystyle at 3045lbs that year. It has a 302 punched ,040" over, stock heads and cam, Edelbrock Performer 289 intake, Carter AFB 4-bbl, Hedman "Hedders", Pertronix solid-state ignition, a C4 auto and 3:1 gearing.
In summer I get around 17 on my commute if I keep my foot out of it, and in winter that drops to around 15-16. Highway seems to average out around 19-20mpg, with 21mpg within sight on a good concrete surface road - but I keep my freeway speed to a strict 60 since I'm without overdrive.
