Pre-Supercharger, I did a 2100 mile trip. Averaged 28.8 for the whole trip with a high of 31.1. Wouldn't mind seeing that mileage again, but I am not swapping back.

Drove over 400 miles out of state and when she just had intake/axelbacks i got a good 26-28 range. Then i started doing triple digits and that went out the window..

I've never gotten better than 15 with my '88. It's a non mass-air 5.0 with an off road h-pipe. Longest trip i have been on is 100 miles one way. I'm actually confused as to why my mpg's are so low.

Drove 300.6 miles and had a quarter tank left. I'm pretty sure i would have gotten another 100 miles, so about 25mpg with the power to boot.

:smilie Driving to Mrytle Beach SC I got 30.7 MPG on the highway. Was about 300 miles. that was calculated not from the dash computer (it said 33 MPG)

Averaged about 65/mph but there were some straight aways where I was going 70

My family used to trip up to Oxford, MS, which is about 350 miles away, several times a year. I remember my dad saying that the Mustang was getting 32/33 mpg(at 70 mph), which was much higher than his truck's 17.

400 miles round trip. I got 23.2 mpg but I doubt I could stay out of the boost long enough to manage that ever again.
