We're flirting with $4.00-4.10 here for premium.

what kind of mileage do yall see? My first tank was 19, 2nd 17, and my 3rd was high 16s. I can't keep my foot out of it.

Oops! $3.78 for regular! Add $.30 for premium! So $4.08 for premium!!! I just go by regular when looking at gas prices!

I get around 18-19 mpg! That's with the cam and all also!

I never reset my MPG calculator cause I want to know since the day I owned my camaro how my mileage has spanned. With ~7,000 miles so far I have a 19.4 MPG average. Not bad at all I think.

I'm paying around 4.12 a gallon for premium.

19? What am I doing wrong? maybe I drive strangely..

My 4th gen got about 20 with me putting my foot into it.

I always run premium. The L99 has a 10.4 compression, seems like a good idea to me.

Your 4th gen also didn't weight 10 tons.

When I drive around town I'm sure I get lower than that. More than half my miles are interstate, 230 miles drive from school to home, so those miles shoot my mileage up.

Also you don't have many miles yet do you? You should get better mileage after break in period.

under 1000 still, but close.

I roll through 1st and 2nd most of the time, because even if you pull 3k rpm in those 2 gears a stock toyota camry will still edge you out in traffic, its just wasting gas.

I usually get on it in 3rd.

I find that torque management has a lot to do with it too. My truck had issues like this when I first got it, it was getting barely 14mpg.

I had a tune put on that deleted torque management, now it gets 16 city, and with DOD I can get 19 city, but other drivers flip me off tailgate me etc. when I do that.

I think you're right, once it gets broken in better I'll see an increase in performance and mileage, and when I finally get around to tuning it it will probably go up again there, as it'll cooperate with my driving style better, rather than fight me like GM's nanny programs are so famous for doing.

that's one thing I really liked about my 4th gen, no traction control, no nanny torque management, no nothing. Just raw power.

That's how you learn to be a better driver.. if nannies take over and prevent you from making a mistake you can't learn.

I don't even look at what i get anymore. I just go to a gas station when it gets low. I have been burning rubber today and ive used about a quarter of a tank in about 30-45 miles.
