I get about 22-23 mpg, but it's almost entirely highway driving and not much congestion. 6.2L/M

I bought a 2013 LS with 7000 miles cuz I got a good deal. Also, thought a v6 would get better MPG than an 8 so that's how I rationalized the buy. Apparently, I'm not doing much better. 18 combined and 22 on road trips ... should've gone with the 8 but at least gas is cheaper. lol

I get 28mpg doing 75-80mph on the highway with my LS. I've gotten over 30mpg if I keep it around 70mph

Op, I think you're average mileage is a little low. I would estimate the average mileage our LS3's are getting when being driven less than aggressively, in mixed city/highway, to be around 16-17 mpg.

Reaper, I don't care what your dashlogic is saying, a 4000lb Camaro with an LS3 just isn't getting 30mpg, unless you're measuring off throttle mileage. In my Corvette with an LS6, I could get 28-30 mpg in 6th gear at 65-70 mph on flat ground, and in my LS7 Vette, I could get 25-26 mpg in the same scenario. Just isn't happening with the Camaro. I've never gotten over 24-25 mpg while babying it from San Jose to Phoenix.....

I was averaging 16 mpg during the first few thousand miles. I now get close to 20 mpg.

I don't know what you want me to say. The program does the calculations not me. I can only show what I get. And I get what I get.

My all time best... Once I was on a smooth, level highway and was limited to a steady 55mph by traffic (AFM enabled) - DIC indicated 27.1 mpg. This held up for about an hour before I got to an Interstate Highway. It dropped to a lower reading of course, as I was able to speed up, but I don't remember where it ended up. Haven't seen that since.
Took a short trip last summer (with Range Device in) and got around 23 - 24.5 averaging 70 mph or so. I haven't hand calculated mileage to verify DIC, as I don't really care that much!

That has never been reset. I also have a heavy foot. Dashlogic is new, less than a month old. I may have watched how hard I pushed the smile peddle a little more while using it. If driven with a light foot I bet I could get it over 25mpg.

I think he's showing an instant MPG.

I've seen 50MPG sticking it into 6th at 35MPH.
Then again, I've seen 0MPG in 1st

I average ~16.2 in my everyday suburban driving. I usually drive when traffic is light with all the other retired old men. 9AM until noon. After noon is when the old ladies crawl around.

30 MPG is 'theoretically' possible if you use hypermiling techniques, drop weight, use thinner tires, ect... but real world for the LS3 camaro is roughly 17-19mpg.

My average over 110k miles is 19.6... ill have to dig and see if I can find my old mileage spreadsheet (stopped tracking every fill-up around 60k if I remember right..)

whoops sorry stopped at 40k... but on average this still holds true today.

Mileage details

I don't care what my gas mileage is. I'm having too much fun just driving it.

2012 SS and I'm at 15 mpg average. When I bought it in Oct it was at 17.
I agree with other people, you have to do more highway driving than anything to get it up.
