35 MPG for V-6?

I saw on the forum that the v-6 gets 35mpg and the v-8 gets 24. are the v-6's really getting that good of fuel milage? If so I'm not changing my order to a v-8 and keeping the v-6 for sure

And the code is now searching for 2LT manuals. Only found two so far and they're pretty low. Almost to 10,000 so we'll see if it finds more.

Here's a link to the page with filters for 2LT Manual

That's not "on the forum". That's an external link. The info is bad.

It's 29 highway. That's like at 55 with cruise control on a level road.

Not quite sure anyone is getting the published MPGs yet. If you look at the V8 threads, most folks are getting from 18-21 MPGs. Some are saying the engine needs to get broken in for the MPGs to improve.

I don't know about the imperial gallons thing.

As far as cruising down the road and looking at the instant mileage on the DIC, ya people are probably hitting 32 in a V6. If you go straight from a gas station on the onramp to the freeway and hit cruise with no congestion- ya maybe.

Pretty optimistic expectation for overall daily driving though.

29 is the revised EPA testing that recently came out to simulate real worl. You should be able to tweak out better than that if you don't lead foot it.

Correct. In the URL there's a PVC code. Changing that will give you different values. Here's the correct values... http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...790#post461790

Of course you can get better MPG than advertised, in many different highway driving conditions, but ratings are based on averages generally. Upslope, downslope, tail wind, ethanol, and even temperature, humidity and barometric pressure can also effect the net result on each vehicle.

Does rim size factor? Maybe the LS gets better mpg? Higher octane?

It's not hard to beat the new EPA ratings at all. They've really lowered the bar. I bet in the Camaro you can just keep the RPM low, enjoy the torque, and beat the EPA.

I tested this extensively, and unless I was going downhill, I didn't go above 28. This is with automatic, AC off.

edit: and not counting acceleration at the beginning.

exactly thats one of the nice things about the new EPA standards, they actually made the tests so the real world fuel economy is the same as the tests

I thought they raised the bar? i.e. epa ratings were made lower where they used to be really optimistic.

They also don't test based on ideal driving conditions. Basically, the test is unfair, and that makes it highly probable that people are reporting higher fuel estimates.
