I can’t seem to get more than 27 MPG, i live in Detroit and if you don’t drive 80+ you will get run over. Has anyone else run speeds about 70 and saw there mileage do way down? With my 2001 Cobra I can get 30MPG at 85 to 90 all day long in 5th gear. so I am lost. help please

Ha! 90? Tarnation, son, who'd ever need to be in such a hurry?

The mileage on my car varies dramatically. One week I have my kids and take them to school, which causes me to skip the interstate, so my mileage is usually around 30mpg. The weeks I don't have the kids I can take the interstate most of the way to work and get around 40mpg.
I was skeptical about the touted MPG due to the power rating, since my crapbox civic couldn't beat 33 with less power and weight. So far, I'm averaging the same or better with every tank compared to that POS and I have much more fun driving it. Seeing that I'm only at 900 miles, I'm pretty sure it will get even better.

When I drove to Disneyland (Paris) I averaged 27mpg @ 90+mph, It's about 500 miles round-trip. On a much shorter autobahn trip I set the cruise at 60mph and was seeing 42-44mpg, I had just filled up.
