What MPG does your V6 mustang get?

Whats the MPG for you different V6 mustangs. One guy with gas saving mods claimed to get 30 MPG heres what he said,

"I can usually get about 420+ miles to a full tank on road trips. 15 gallon tank equals 28+mpg."

Is this possible?

2001 vert:

Suspension: Eibach Pro kit, Tokico Blue Shocks and Struts, MM CC Plates, LCA, rear sway bar

Performance: Mass Air System, True Dual exhaust, intake spacer, built jmodded tranny

Mods currently either sitting at home being shipped: Fully ported and polished Heads and intake, 218/224 cam, 4.10 gears with detroit locker, HID kit and Zex kit

i have heard of people getting 30+ mpg on their stangs. as for me the best highway mpg i have got is 26mpg and the average street mpg i get is 17 to 18 mpg. i floor my car a lot tho so thats probably why i get that ****** mpg with my "fuel efficient" mods.

my 35mpg was at 70-75 average and very few spots of up to 80/85. I had the cruise control on pretty much the entire time as well.

What size exhaust are you running? If you go too big you lose torque, which means you have to use more gas to get moving.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him.
