Gas Milage

Just a short question. How's the gas milage on those who have the LS3?

I take it you drive resonably? I don't jump off the line when pulling away from a stop light. I pull away smoothly and I maintain the speed limit + 3-5 mph. Is that about how you drive? Do you still have the skip-shift feature or did you get the skip-shift elimination harness? And lastly how big is the gas tank? I'm still toying between the V-6 and the V-8. This car will be my daily driver. My daily comute is 20% stop-and-go and 80% highway. Thanks!

I've gotten 23.5 on a couple trips through the Rockies driving 75-80 mph. I get about 18 around town and that includes putting my foot in it now and then for the people that like to look at this car.

I am around 18......I took a recent trip to Williamsburg and I just got the car, i was breaking the engine in properly, so between 50-65mph, i was getting 28mpg on the higheways. 98% of the time i was between 60-65mph and in 6th gear at about 1500rpms, so i thought that was pretty good !!!

Just did a 300 mile trip. Used onboard computer to estimate mpg. At 80mph-got 23mpg. At 65mph-registored 22mpg. Go figure. Pen and paper round trip averaged out to 21mpg. I drive a 2ss/m6

Got 900 miles, still performing semi-aggressive break-in so my numbers are going to be low until around 1500 miles. So far I'm around 15 mpg and change. Includes 5 mile interstate travel to work, then 5 miles home. Lunch run, evening drives, and weekends are around town for the most part. Would be nice to see low 20s when I start driving normally. If not, oh well...I love it anyway!

LOL!!! My baby's got 2000 miles on her and my average MPG is 13.3

Maybe too much "enthused" driving?
