I just bought my SVT on 4/24 and have averaged 27MPG. I'm happy with that considering my old '05 ZX3 with the Duratec only averaged 27-28mpg on a normal week. Once, I squeezed 34mpg out of the '05 with all interstate driving.

love the scangauge

within the city, I get around 32-36 (yes, really lol) unless I like to get there the same time but take off faster, around 26-28.

highway I get 40mpg...... about nothing more than that unless I want to coast everywhere. did that once coming home and ended up with an estimate for the day at 61mpg. LOL.

breathing mods are 2.25" flex back exhaust, and DIY intake (cone instead of box. lol)

I have not found it hard to get 34 city and 40 highway with my 07 ZXW... watch the tire air pressure, top speed, acceleration... and I pace myself by watching ahead for stoplights so where possible I don't come to a complete stop -- the greatest requirement comes at starting from a dead standstill.

I've filled up 3 times so far 1st tank was 28mpg 2nd was 29mpg and the 3rd (after I hit 1k miles) was 25mpg because I started getting on it a bit. I'm going to try to go a whole tank while hypermiling to see what she can do.

I like to picture my Jesus in a tuxedo t-shirt, cuz it says, Hey I'm formal, but I like to party. I like to think of Jesus as having huge angel wings, and singin the lead vocals to Lynyrd Skynard, and I'm in the front row hammered drunk!
