Arrow What's your GT's MPG ???? Good or Bad ????

Ok going to be getting a new GT. I see the numbers posted are 18/25?

I have a 2007 V6 with 20" shelby wheels and big tires that the sticker MPG are 18/26

So can it be right that I can get the same MPG on a New GT as my 2007 V6?

What numbers are you guys getting and what do you think?

The difference between v6 and v8 mpg is very little. With the newer technology its a given its around the same. A 5.0 will be a huge upgrade from a 07 v6 and you'll love it

This question comes up often. I'm not normally one to holler "Do a forum search!" but in this case you might want to, as I think people get tired of repeating themselves.

My car returns 15-16mpg for city-only driving, 26-27 on the highway, and has averaged about 18.4 MPG overall since new.

Also, someone will be along directly to tell you that you don't buy a GT if you're worried about fuel economy.

I get roughly 14, but if you're getting a GT, why care? Just have fun with it.

My GT has only 1,020 miles on it, mostly city but with some highway driving, and I'm averaging 18.6 mpg. I must say, however, that my car is so much fun I wouldn't care if I was averaging 14 mpg. Fabulous car!

I routinely get 21-23 in my 2010 in mixed all-around driving. This includes some highway, some country roads and around town, but very little stop and go. This is per the dash computer and hand verified; I've done the math many times and it always comes out very close.

Yeah there are other threads on this that could be found with a search, but we do need some new threads to keep things moving around here.

I used to get 17-18 around town, 24-25 on the highway with the stock Pirelli PZero tires.

When I switched to Continental Extreme Contact DWS (after seeing endorsements on here), it's more like 20 around town, 27 on the highway. And the car handles better...so go figure.

Now it's within an MPG or two of my Subie WRX...which is almost shockingly good for a V8.

For my short commute back and forth to work (<25 miles RT), which is about 50/50, I get 18+ mpg. On a longer 200 mile RT that is about 75% highway @75 mph/25% back roads, I have gotten 23+ mpg. Haven't had a chance to do a 100% highway run, but expect that it would at least meet the EPA estimate.

As was said, the mpg increase compared to my F150 is just icing on the cake. It's all about the fun factor of driving a Mustang.

I think it's irrelevant..........If your MPG are good.........you might not have enough fun.
If you intend to DD it, it might be important, otherwise.......burn some fuel and support the economy.

Mine has approximately 4500 miles on it and is averaging exactly 21 mpg from when I took delivery. My driving consists of about 70% city 30% highway. I don't beat it all the time, but do let is loose quite often. I do think if I drove it like a normal car then it would be getting 23 mpg, but then why would I want a Mustang"
