MPG on LS3

I haven't seen any discussion on the + numbers the reviewers gave for MPG on the SS on here yet. The new Camaro website set up on monday rates the SS at 15-22MPG and I think all of the reviews stated 16-24 and 16-25 auto trans. If the 16-24 is accurate, thats pretty darn good, don't ya think? I just see it as a bonus really, the smaller numbers were fine with me as well, but what the heck, it's a plus for the SS to squeeze another mile or 2 out of a gallon of premium gas!

It's been discussed and the charts on the site are correct whereas the graphics have the old numbers.

Amen to that brother.

Although if the price of gas gets real bad I'll bitch and moan about it, but still fill up when needed. If most of us were really concerned with mileage, I don't think we'd be buying a 'muscle' car; kind of defeats the purpose Besides, the posted MPG on the SS is better than what my current Tahoe gets, so bonus!

Gotta be better than a 4,800 lb suv with a LS2 and 4:11 gears and also a heavy foot.

And thats what makes the V6 Camaro really shine. Muscle car looks and impressive performance and great mileage.
