I have an 02 gt. My cousin has a 99 gt and i lent him my car for a day. He told me that my cars gas mileage was a lot less than his. It seems alright on the highway but my city mileage seems really bad. I don't have any numbers figured out but it seems bad.

I have a few mods. bbk long tubes, catted bbk short H pipes, SCT livewire tuner (I have it set to gas mileage tune running 93), MSD ignition coils, steeda short throw shifter, Spec stage 2 clutch and 4:10s.

Pretty recently changed the plugs, coils and boots (one went bad), oil, fuel pump, fuel and air filter, and transmision fluid. Ive tried cleaning my maf and that didnt help.

The car seems to run fine. It has a slight miss every once and a while at idle but i think i read that that was normal. It has a slightly rough start up sometimes.

Anyone have any ideas what could cause my bad gas mileage?

it could be long oil change intervals,gas concern,buy gas from the busy station, that one is more likely to be dry.the engine needs to be clean to run at it's best.that means clean engine oil and fresh gas.cheap paper engine air filters do not help either.

Correct tire pressure is also a must when it comes to gas mileage.
