1986 Mustang GT/LX 5.0L EPA fuel mileage ratings:

Automatic AOD = 17 MPG city/26 MPG highway
Manual T-5 = 17 MPG city/25 MPG highway

I recently clocked 24 MPG highway with my high-mileage, oil burning, hooptie of an '86 GT.

Thanks for the response! We decided not to go with that car, they wanted way too much for it! So we're still shopping around, we did find a couple of 93's so we'll see!!!!!!!! :laughlitt

I juss wrecked my 1986 GT 5.0 HO hatchback. Wasn't that bad on gas. When ya lay into her she'll bark em n brake em loose really easy. be carefull!!! Newayz i have an 1987 GT performer, body in fair condition, that I'm droping my 5.0 and t-5 tranny into. Hopefully I'll have it all going by this weekend, wiring everything is a pain. The previous owner cut wireharness and hoses looks a mess. Another project........P.S..BUY IT!!! :wavey :wavey :wavey :wavey :wavey :wavey :wavey :wavey :wavey :wavey :wavey :wavey :wavey :wavey :wavey :wavey :eyebulge:

I bought my 86 with no rust on the body or underbody for only $3500, how much is the one u looked at? It only had 77,000 original miles at purchase date.

24 sounds about right. I took a road trip in my 90 gt ragtop automatic and got 24 with it too. I have plenty of miles on it to.

A mustang v8 or any performance car with a big engine is not going to get good gas milage. If your concerned about milage by a hybrid. Advertised milage doesn't apply when you start pushing on that go pedal... And once you get hooked on ur stang you'll be doing that all the time..
