Not your average MPG thread

Forget trying to achieve high MPGs...The muscle car era is making a come back and I see all these threads complaining about not getting high enough MPG or bragging about how high they have gotten. That's what we are worried about in this glorious second coming?!

If anything we should be bragging about how low we can get!!! Post your incredibly low MPGs with Pride!!!!!

When I first got my 2LS, which had about 13k miles on it, my aggressive driving lead to about 17.8 MPG average according to the DIC.

Yeah...don't exactly agree with your meme.

Chevy Volt? Chevy Cruze diesel getting 45mpg? Chevy Spark? Dodge Dart? Ford Focus? Ford Fiesta? Tesla (FTW) All American there.

I would rethink that

With a lot of people talking about high 20's for their gas mileage I thought I was the only one that was averaging 15-18 lol

In college with a 2002 Z28 6speed I got about 6mpg out of one tank of gas! I had just removed the cats and it was a college town. 1st and 2nd gear flyin past the girls dorms.

My truck I got rid of to get my '14 SS got 11mpg. I have no idea what mpg my SS gets.

Haha I love this thread, but I remember when I first got my car I was averaging about 8-10 mpg, Its safe to say my engine speed averaged at about 4000 rpm throughout the day.

Reset the counter and start your car - you are getting 0 mpg until you move.

I am averaging 13.2mpg for the first 2100 miles and I don't ride it to hard. When I do ride it hard a tank will yield about 9.2mpg

Mine is a daily driver, mostly to and from work, about 50/50 highway/street, I’m seeing 15ish. No complaints, I figure it’s not bad for a muscle car.
