Hey Turab,

Where did you get these numbers? They seem wayyyy to high, and way too disproportionate from the American numbers. Maybe 31mpg highway, but not 41...

Although, I wouldn't complain

You should get way better mileage on the highway with manual trans if you don't drive with a lead foot.

I don't know about "much better". 31mpg would be pretty good for a 304Hp V6 to start with. But 41mpg? That's getting close to a Prius!!!

So then they are exaggerated then. No one gets the mileage Transport Canada comes up with.

The manual trans runs 175rpm higher at 70mph. The manual could be able to get better city mileage, but the auto will do a little better on the highway.

V6 manual at 70mph: 2025rpm
V6 auto at 70mph: 1800rpm

I don't think either will get 41mpg anywhere...

That Cobalt is 36 mpg highway in the U.S. Here in Canada, the Cobalt XFE gets 52 MPG highway as a comparison. Toyota Corolla, only 50 MPG.

Assuming "mile" is the same, that 41mpg comes out to 34 miles per US gallon. That's more believable.

Transport Canada's rating on the V6 Camaro is 6.8L/100 KM.
Translated, this equals 41.54 miles per imperial gallon, which, as has already been stated, is 20% larger than the U.S. gallon.
U.S. gallon equivalent = 34.59 mpg.

Best regardSS,

Elie

And our rating system was more optimistic than the old US system. For reference, the Prius is rated at 71 mpg city, 67 highway.

I know that the EPA here is not so realistic but numbers are there for comparison's sake with the othe manufacture for example we have the 2.4L vibe gt with 5 spd manual that is rated by epa 29 mpg in city and 39 mpg on the highway!

Compare apples to apples .... epa rating on others vs camaro....


you get the picture and yes the vehicle is sold order but should be picked up either monday or tuesday.... cheers!
