MPG poll
 
I thought out of curiousity I'd start a poll to see what kind of mpg everyone is getting. If you are getting around 30+ mpg could you please reply with the things you did or methods used to increase your mpg. I've filled up 3 times so far. The mpg for the tank of gas from the dealership is not accurate as I don't know for sure if the trip miles were on the tank.

Rounded to the nearest 10th.
Fill up---MPG
0---------????
1---------24.4
2---------25.7
3---------Still driving on this tank.

I up shifted a little bit later on fill up #2 (between about 2750 and 3000 rpms vs around 2250 give or take 200 rpms.

I drive a ATX and drive with a little bit of a heavier foot. I have seen 28 mpg (once) but 24-25 is my total average is.

SCT 93 octane ZED0 tune from FocusSport & K&N Drop-in. Last 1800 miles since tune ave. 34 MPG. Mostly commuting to and from work. Shifting at 2000 to 2500 and only thrashing really deserving people.... although it seems like I need to spank at least a couple per tank.

Long distance highway would probably be a bit better without all the cold-starts on my daily drive.

Oh, keeping the tires 35/32 and the alignment toed out as far as possible. I think the stock settings are too conservative and cost mileage.

did u know that for every b2 psi missing in your tires you mpg goes down by 1%. so pump up your tires

i usually get around 30 mpg, mostly city driving, with my ATX, and my mods are in my profile. i drive pretty hard about 30% of the time, so i get pretty good mileage.

I have an SVT and am averaging close to 27 MPG's since I've purchased it brand new. I drive normal, a few quick starts per tank, but usually taking off normally and shifting at 3k.

The lowest I've seen was low-mid 23 MPG's, but that's when I have a really heavy foot. The highest I've seen was mid 31 MPG's.

I have an intake and throttle body for mods, but it really hasn't had any effect on my MPG's. I have a tune, but I'm still on the first tank. I might have picked up a MPG, but it's too early to tell on one tank.

I average about 28-29 on the street, and about 10 on the track.

I average a little over 25 mixed driving on an ATX with a lead foot... highest I've ever seen was like 28.9 which was all cruising at highway speed. Worst ever was 19, ALL stop and go in the dead of winter.
