GAS? how many miles per gallon do you get on your camaro? Preferably from the 2SS??

Hey guys I was just interested in how much miles per gallon everybody gets. Both v6 and v8 info is appreciated, but I'm looking forward to the v8 info in particular. How many times do you fill
up a week/month??
All info is appreciated )

I've put about 400 miles on it so far and am averaging 19mpg in a mix of city and highway type miles. Used about a tank and a half.

V6 automatic

I have 17,700 on mine and I have a 2SS. When doing a mix of 70% highway & 30% city I average 20mpg. When its closer to 50/50 it drops to about 17-18mpg

Pretty much 15-16, more when I'm only highway driving. I do a mix of city and highway, and I'm not babying it.

My 1SS-6M has been steadily climbing since I brought it out of hibernation. Before hibernation, back in Sept-Oct, at 1-2K miles, around 15-17 mpg in 50/50 mix of driving.

Now it is 18-20 mpg with 3K miles and I have not changed my driving habits, fuel, etc. at all. I am getting 24-25 mpg in all highway driving.

2ss ls3 I've only driven in town so any where form 13 to 14 mpg. I've got 1900 miles on it so far so not thinking the Mpgs are gonna get much better. But I didn't buy it for gas mileage.

I won't lie the gas mileage rating was a bit misleading, at least on the 6. Then again I am still learning manual so that could be part of it.
