GT that I have had for a month. Drive it hard. Started at 19MPG and last tank was 22MPG. Seems to go up a mile a tankful. Will stop soon I am sure. Put a K&N filter in after 1000 miles. Beats the hell out of my RAM pickup at 15MPG.

I have about 500 mi on my GT 5spd now and I am getting about 17-18 driving it pretty hard around town. Highway mileage goes way up. Haven't done enough to really measure it yet though.

edit: I just calculated my last fillup and and I was up to 19.6 mpg around town. Guess it's getting broken in.

My wife has an '01 Touring and I have an '02 Touring. Hers averages between 21 and 25 mpg. Mine averages between 19 and 23 mpg. Last June I got 27 mpg driving up to CTF2 at Niagra Falls.

2001 Automatic - 25,000 miles - 21.1 MPG average. I have a record of every gallon of gas purchased and every mile traveled. High 25 mpg on road trip. Low 17 mpg - city driving over snow and ice.
