What kind of MPG are you getting - SS Standard?

What kind of MPG are you guys getting w/ a standard shift driving "Nicely" I know dealer says 24mpg.. wondering if you're babying it if you get 26-28?

(sorry if there's already a thread - I looked for the last 10 min - figured I'd just post)

Thanks!

-Drew

I only got that 26-28 range when I drove from Saint Louis to Indianapolis- all highway, pretty much all flat, pretty much all just straight boring road, with cruise control at around 70 and wait for nearly 4 hours of driving to finally pass by. On my day to day (mixed highway 50%, city 50%) I get a true 19.2-19.5 avg. I'm not babying it but not thrashing either, but being efficient (high gears and using the tons of torque), hardly going over 2K RPM at any time.

Just took a trip to NY last weekend and got 24 MPG. Kept the cruise-control on and in sixth gear most of the time. Yeah...pretty much babied it. Don't see much more than 24 MPG if any.

City driving 15

Haven't done much highway driving (1300 miles).

Hope you didn't buy your car for fuel economy

Thanks for the Thread Drew NOel. I was wondering the same thing. My 2010 V6 Malibu was rated for 18 city / 29 highway / 22 combined. I seem to be pulling 31 Highway / 23.5 Combined with it. Thinking Chevy may be underrating the MPG.

Though I didn't order the SS for fuel mileage...

Sorry but my SS does not know the meaning of "babying".

I am getting about 18 mph mixed driving, but I don't drive the car to achieve maximum fuel efficiency. That is still good for a V8.

In 1992, I bought a brand new Jeep Grand Cherokee, titled out as a 1993 since it was a brand new model at the time. Funny how laws work. Anyways, the rig had a straight 6, or 4.0L I-6, was a HO, High Output engine, pushing 190HP, which at the time was considered great, along with the City/Hwy mileage of 15/20, it seemed great.

A month after I bought the rig, a V8 was introduced, a Chrysler 5.2L or 318cu in "Magnum V8" engine that pushed 225HP or so. I heard tell it was much louder and the MPG was worse, but I never had one. I was very happy with the I6, lasted me 198,500 miles.

Loved that rig.

Oh yeah, about the Camaro, 323HP for a V6 and 400/426 HP for the V8 and what????? 505HP for the 2014 Z/28 with a 427 engine?

Remember 20yrs ago, when the new Dodge Viper V-10 had 300HP................times change.

I have never taken a real trip in mine, but I know that I can baby it and short shift it and get 18 around town. If I drive it for fun around town it hangs at around 11 mpg. I drove it an hour on highways and hit the reset in the dic once I got on, and at the exit I was showing 22 something.

My 2012 Cruze 1.4 turbo gets a true calculated 39 mpg on the interstate

I absolutely did not buy it (Camaro) for fuel economy. I absolutely got the Cruze for fuel economy. For 65K you can have it both ways! A 2SS/RS TF3 car and a 1LT/RS Cruze with the engine from the Eco car.

I think the 93 Viper was rated at 400HP and 450 Lbs/ft of torque.

I went from LA to San Francisco and got 23 avg going north, and the return trip I got 25 avg. This was obviously me keeping my foot out of it.
If I drive city mixed with freeway, I average like 18-19.
