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.

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.

Granted, I have a 2.3, so the mpg is certainly not going to be apples to apples vs a 5 liter. The best I ever got was on a single tank was 491. I wanted to hit 500 in the worst way, but I was on a toll road that did not have any stops for several miles, but I would have did it if there were. It was all non-stop highway miles.

Otherwise I was averaging 30 mpg in that car on a regular basis. Gotta love that 15 gallon tank.:bigthumbsup

1000 miles is about the longest trip I've taken.

With the cruise set at 79 mph my best ever has been just over 29 but just over 27 is pretty consistant on the freeway.

I do average closer to 17 around town.

I have a 5.0L with an auto trans.
