if your car has a significant amount of miles on it and/or if you don't use fuel injector/cleaners your mpg will be lower than advertised.

i get about 20mpg on my '00 gts manual..but i'm showing upwards of 50k miles.

you will also get better mpg if you don't allow your gas tank to get below 1/4 tank. top off often and your mpg will increase (be more like the advertised mpg) thumbsup

Don't top off the gas tank. Too much gas will just slosh or seep out. Why waste those extra pennies


if you are really worried about getting the best MPG...

Keep your tires inflated properly. This one is simple and a potential lifesaver. Underinflated tires waste fuel and wear out the tire tread. Also, check tires regularly for alignment and balance.

A well-tuned engine burns less gas. Get regular tuneups and follow through with routine maintenance. The right parts and fresh oil keep your engine happy and less thirsty for gas.

Get the junk out of the trunk. A weighed-down car uses more fuel. For every extra 250 pounds your engine hauls, the car loses about one mile per gallon in fuel economy. Carry only the basic emergency equipment and items you really need.

Drive intelligently; don't make fast starts or sudden stops. You're just overexerting your engine and burning extra fuel. Gradual acceleration also helps automatic transmissions run better. Engine-revving wastes fuel, too.

Lighten up on the accelerator. The faster you drive, the more gas you use. Speed limits have gone up around most of the nation, but you don't have to see your fuel consumption go up drastically as well. For example, driving at 55 mph rather than 65 mph can improve your fuel economy by two miles per gallon.

Avoid long warm-ups. Even on cold winter mornings, your car doesn't need more than a minute to get ready to go. Anything more and you're just burning up that expensive fuel.

Tighten up that gas cap. Make sure it's on securely. Buy a new one if your current cap doesn't fit snugly. Gas easily evaporates from the tank if it has an escape.

Be smart with the air conditioning. On the highway, closed windows decrease air resistance, so run the air conditioner. But in stop-and-go traffic, shutting off the air conditioning and opening the windows can lighten your fuel use. Air conditioning can lower your fuel economy by 10 percent to 20 percent

sorry, i mean to-off to equal when your fuel pump naturally stops.

there are sediments and other impurties in gasoline. over time, these sediments build up on the bottom of your fuel tank...allowing your gas to get low mixes up these sediments and mpg is decreased.

oddly enough my car has 89000 miles on it and I still get 31-33 miles per gallon.

I haven't done any of the math really, but I've driven close to 300 miles on the tank the dealer gave me, and it's just below half way. So I'm getting 30+ mpg, but then again, the car has less than 400 miles on it.

My auto GTS gets around 23-26 MPG. I'm sure that's about to go down though... I didn't have it for the dog days of last summer, when you need AC at 6pm at night.
