Kinda Surprised

Ok cars been broken in and I have been back and forth with the mid atlantic caravan to Indy for camarofest. We were cruising at times upwards of 90 miles an hour and hitting some decent hills. On the way back I hit a bad back up and waited in traffic for almost an hour and nearly ran out of gas. Not the best thing for improving your mpg with these cars. I have not been to the track yet, but have stomped on the gas pedal a number of times after break in. But my mpg is better then I would have thought it would be at 17.8 mpg. I've been to easy on this car
, any one else up or above this average?

I think red is the slipperiest color. I'll see how AGM does in a couple of weeks.

I drove mine back from Michigan when I picked it up and the best I got was 22.8 I think and averaged the whole trip at about 21.5-22 mpg! I still haven't been able to really open mine up yet , but I'm really itching too!! Got back into town with 1650 miles on like the 4th of August and since have put about 125 miles on her! I also followed break in procedure all the way home too!! But I didn't have to get over the 4K RPM's to really feel the power of this beast!
