Hey brushmore, I love the avatar! "No, No, No, No, Nooooooooooo!!! Why, oh why, oh why???" LOL!
Ford's current 5.0 engine is impressive - I have one in a 2011 Mustang GT Automatic and another in a 2013 F150 (my four wheel drive winter Mustang).Ok going to be getting a new GT. I see the numbers posted are 18/25?
I have a 2007 V6 with 20" shelby wheels and big tires that the sticker MPG are 18/26
So can it be right that I can get the same MPG on a New GT as my 2007 V6?
What numbers are you guys getting and what do you think?
After trip back- 402 miles total - 14.0 gallons to fill up = 28.6 mpg.This:

"Hypermiling" experiment. Near Leominster MA to Tenafly NJ. End of run is 31.2 on trip computer, adjusting down 3% from my stock tire size to the 255/40/19 Michelin PSS I run now gives a corrected 30.2 mpg. 201 mile trip, filled tank at start, have about 9/16 tank left (9 gallons) left. I saw 31.7 crossing into NY on the Merit Pkwy. Yes, I have previously checked my trip computer with fillup amounts and it is dead nuts on.
I generally get 22-24 mpg.
