good mpg

I drive an 03 svt and love it! I average 26-27 mpg around town. I do get that erg to 'gun it' and let 'er eat though. Yes, 6 gears help, but common sense is key when trying to do a mileage run. Light on pedal, drafting, coasting, and speeding up going downhill all help for me. Also I try to keep rpm's at 3000 or less at all times. I have yet to go on an open road trip to see how good it gets then. Later.
