V6 gas mileage

Let's start a thread exclusively for V6 gas mileage (most other listings are V8).
Just report auto or manual and % city/highway driving.

I am averaging 21mpg with mostly highway driving and some city. I have had the air on so I dont know if that makes a difference. I have to say its slightly dissapointing but I have been told it takes time to settle and break the car in so who knows.

Other than that the car is fantastic

So what's up with this thread? I'm interested in Mileage. I just got my car last week and I'm trying to figure out what my average should be. So far not as good as expected but much better than my 77

That's pretty close to what Motortrend reported when they had a V6M6 Camaro. They said 20.9mpg average.

My Stripe is Silver and I had the windows tinted at 35% - I think it looks pretty stealthy.

Thats pretty good. Especially for the break in period. Not bad at all.

I just got my Camaro (2LT V6 Manual trans) last week 06-17-2009. So far I have exactly 300 miles on it. My average is 23.3 mpg. Almost all of it is highway. I am still on the first tank of fuel the dealer put in.
