More Reason

Very Nice Ride I'm in the same boat. It has been a harsh Winter here in Southern Ohio.
I would say off the average for sure for our area.
Nice car I still say it's a keeper.

LOL - yeah, in Bizarro world...

Normally your car isn't going to be in boost when you're driving steady-state on the highway. All the supercharger is doing is coming along for the ride and adding some drag. Best case scenario is you get close to what you were getting before you supercharged it. Don't know about the Roush but the eforce marketing bullet point: "...integrated bypass valve helps eliminate parasitic loss under light throttle for improved mileage potential...". An attempt to remove the blower as much out of the equation as possible so it doesn't hurt mpg too much (not improve it) ....

I'm thinking its more rose color glasses, which is a good state of mind to be in.

OP - Congratulations!

I'm consistenly getting in and around 26-28 mpg highway depending. This is at a very steady driving state. 72mph, cruise on, etc. Overall lets just say I think that I'm very impressed that the supercharger did not affect my mileage as negatively as first believed. I was told that most people tend to lose some mileage. My mileage was not affected as much and I'm very happy with what I get out of the car. However, if I drive in a more spirited manner I do pay the price at the pump which goes without saying.
