mpg's
 
Took my brother out for a spin the other night and his biggest beef with my ST was the overdrive gear.Got me thinking it might be my only beef with the car.I mainly drive her to work which is 120 miles roundtrip.And just think how much better MPG she would get with a true Overdrive 6th gear.Right now at 65 mph She is @ 2500 rpm in 6th.I am getting @29 mpg with the 93 tune from Unleashed and kn dropin filter with muffler delete.Wish RPM's in 6th were more like 2000 rpm..im thinking 32-33mpg easily,hey it all adds up.Just my .02...[ffrocks]

29 doesn't seem to bad for a stock st. They is more you can do to get 1-3mpg I'm sure.

just did my 3rd oil change.Now have 10,300 + miles on her.was gonna wait a year to put a real exhaust on, since i already did muffler delete.But i stopped at Buschur racing and talked to jarrod and heard his st and ordered a twin tip catback from them.[headbang]mycommute is 120 mile roundtrip.If i set cruise at 65 i can get a smidge over 31 mpg.But on avg. im getting 29.2 since getting car.

Mixed driving in New England I get 26mpg. On a long run I got 29mpg. Never had higher but I am happy with that. About 2,000 miles on the car.
