Millage is a relative number it really depend on how you drive the car. I typically see 30mpg average, my car has 27mpg over it lifetime that about 3900 miles right now. But I have also gotten 12mpg in the car when I had it on the track, so if you are in the gas a lot yes the millage will suck if you stay out of itís pretty dam good.

Wonderful thing about the st and Iím sure the other cars is there still small and good handling cars so you can drive it like a momentum car but you donít have to been in the gas hard.
My rides a 2002 SVT track car, & Boosted 2007 ST with the SAP.
The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you? - It protects my head.

Do you have any special rituals when the helmet is concerned like many have? - I wipe it so that I can see better.
