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.

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.
