People who say what their mpg in their SS is need to say their average speed also, makes a difference.

about 1-2 mpg difference...
I found my 2SS SGM in Nov last year and the dealership still has my 2LT sitting on the lot... I do not miss her.

Fair enough... I probably average 40-50mph on my commute to and from work (6.5 miles each way)

Pretty much this. But those miles are more fun now so it's a fair tradeoff.

Averaged about 19.9 on 87 octane in my V6, now average 19.5 on 93 octane with my LS3, I don't think I do as much spirited driving as I prolly should lol but the power difference is amazing!

Not sure I really understand this. Unless they share avg. speed in their V6 as well...

All I know is I have not moved, I have not changed where I work, so my commute has not changed, therefore the change in MPG is directly related to the only thing that has changed which is vehicle.

OP: Bottom line, do what you want...

you could have an average speed of 60mph and get 10mpg. All about that acceleration

Sorry, I understand how Avg. speed factors into the Avg. MPG but not in this thread.

...then again it would be helpful to the OP to see who has the same Avg. speed as them and than see the delta of MPG. but this an old topic...

You don't buy the V8 for gas milage...

That being said, I averaged 17-19 most of the time for my daily driving with mine.

$16k for an LS is on the low side to me. I myself would try for closer to the $18k mark for trade in or you need to get a couple grand lower on the 2011 2SS. Dealers biggest profit margin is on trade-ins and they would be making a killing and then some on that deal. JMO.

Switched from a 2LT/RS 2o A 2SS/RS, weekly driving fell from 20 to 17.5, and the highway from 29 to 24.

Keep in mind, the cost difference from Regular to premium. Here it is about 35 cents a gallon higher.

And yes, this is the same commute that I did in the 2LT.

Do I enjoy it? Hell yes. The gas is affordable for me, but if it will bother you...think about it...

If my calculations are correct, it cost me about 23 cents a mile in the V8 vs 18 cents a mile in the V6.

So, the decision is yours.
