Actual Gas milage/GT or STI- seriously.

2 things guys. 1- What's the true ave. gas mileage for the GT. I just dont believe that it's 21 for an 8 cyl. American car. Also, how does it feel to see a car like an STI fly by on the highway, and know that there's no way to handle/perform at that level? I want a GT sooo badly, but people assure me that I wouldn't be happy with the performance. Thanks.

Ever since I received mine, '05 GT, I have gotten between 21 and 23 MPG. I currently only use premium fuel and get my fuel at quality gas stations. I only also have 1300 miles on my car. I use Mobil 1 synthetic oil whether that helps or not.

To add also, this is driving the vehicle 50/50. 50% screwing around with no regard to milage savings (this car is just to dang fun), launching at stoplights, passing etc and 50% driving at normal speeds, normal starts and stops etc. My highest fuel milage once was 24.8 MPG, worst was 19.2 MPG.

I live at an altitude of 7000' in the Rocky Mountains too.
