I just got home from a trip up the coast?LA to San Simeon and back?560 miles with a few side trips. I averaged 24 mpg and am very pleased with the performance. How are other people doing on gas mileage? I know that we measure our birds by "smiles per gallon" but I'd be interested to know of others experiences.

By the way, I got my first gouges on the front bumper (where the license plate should go) from flying stones. I think I'll order a bra tomorrow.
 
don't know, don't care.

Ristonejr-Have not seen you on the road yet but I keep looking. My White over Red should be here tomorrow then maybe you will see me. Like you -gas- when ever!!!
 
Just getting 14 because work is only 4 miles away with lots of stoplights, but like rlstonejr said, don't care. Got 25 on a trip to Detroit in January.

Well I care...Got 24 on First Tank with 300 miles of highway driving and it looks like 18 on the second with city and highway driving (still have not filled up yet). It would be nice to get 30 mpg on the higway and with engines as advanced as this one it is hard to believe that you do not. My 87 Mustang 5.0 Convertible used to get 27 mpg on the highway with the old pushrod engine. I hate to stop for gas, it is nice to have the 18 gallon tank.
 
Paul,

I wouldn't hold my breath on getting 30 highway, unless maybe you want to drive 50mph on the interstate.
 
With this car it is THE PLEASURE OF THE RIDE NOT THE COST OF THE MILE

PLEASURE (Webster's Dictionary )
A pleased feeling
Enjoyment
Delight
Satisfaction
A thing that gives delight or grate satisfaction
Gratification of the senses
Amusement; fun
