Hello everyone. I recently took a trip to Thompson International Speedway and averaged 37 mpg traveling I-395 N. I'll admit there were more downhills than uphills and I had my cruise control set at 55 mph, no A/C. The EPA rates the Mustang at 19/31.
But get this- I currently have a 93 Bama Tune, Aluminum Driveshaft, staggered 18" wheels, and AFE cold air intake installed. Automatic. 2.73 gearing. So can anyone/has anyone out there beat 37 mpg highway fuel economy?
The best I got on last weekend's roadtrip was 36mpg actual / 33 computer on Highway 395 southbound. Drove 293 miles still only about at 1/2 tank when I stopped, driving 65-80mph, passing cars, 90+ degrees temp, A/C on, 91 octane. Averaged 32.8mpg actual for the whole 1,513 mile trip on two-lane backroads while passing slower traffic, av speed around 75mph. To say I'm happy with the mileage and performance is an understatement.
