Default Re: Gas Mileage

At posted speeds plus about 5 mph (75 in a 70, etc.) my V6 3.6 gets 26-29, and at a cruise controlled 60 mph I was able to go over 500 miles and get 36.4 mpg in November 2011.

In town I get 18-20 year 'round.

Driving style, speed, conditions - can you spend a little time defining "horrible" and how you get it?

Guys, Gelite55 might be a troll. 2 posts and both question the feasibility of HIDs or mileage. Hmmmm........

07 SS - ~88K Miles
Averaging 20-22 MPG
I drive equally in 'city' and on the highway.

The EPA adjusts the numbers down for the window sticker rating to be more realistic. Their actual test numbers are only used for an automakers CAFE score. (See the difference between ratings done before 2008 and after.)

2007 SS, combination city/highway (43mph average according to the computer) and I get 26.4mpg with a removed resonator and de-screened MAF. Don't think either of those two things have done anything though.
