Thread: Pretty Good Gas Mileage

    Pretty Good Gas Mileage

    50 miles on a 2 lane 60mph and another 30 or so on a 70mph 4 lane today. Not bad mileage for a 332hp hot rod. Of course driving around town dropped it down somewhat but overall 174 miles averaged 25.6 mpg.

    Thats great milage!
    30 years ago that much power would have only come out of a large V8 and you would have seen 17 mpg numbers even on the hiway

    Nice! Best I ever got in the G35 was 28.9 mpg as well cruising at 65mph in the high desert in Eastern Oregon. I typically get 24mpg commuting to work (combo of hwy, hwy traffic congestion, and in town).

    I remember many years ago when I was a kid and my dad would brag about getting 21 mpg with a Ford flathead v-8. Yesterday on the way home I was following a cattle truck on a two lane highway. He was cruising at 65-70 mph so I just hung back and cruised with him. We had to come to a stop when a farm truck in front of us was making a left turn and subsequently it was taking the cattle truck a bit to get his truck and load moving and up to speed. There was a break in oncoming traffic and I was in third gear so I punched it and started to pass. When I was about even with the cab the shift light blinked and I caught 4th gear just in time to watch the speedometer climbing past 110 mph as I cleared him and pulled back into the lane. Sure beats the heck out of the l948 Nash I had when I was a senior in high school.

    Pretty impressive for the HP ! Makes you wonder why anyone would buy a Pirus
    I barely get 24/25 on the hwy these days in the G, hovers around 19/20 around town. Ironically, the M gets the very same 19/20 - go figure ..........
