I know for a fact that I've used a whole tank in about 190 miles, but that was giving it WOT at every occasion around town (LS1/M6). I don't know how much of an effect the temp has on mileage. I doesn't get that cold here.
speed_demon_freak said:Well I have 837 miles on the car and Ive filled it up 4 times. Its been below freezing for the last 3 weeks with temps below 0 for about a week. Here in Chicago we use reformulated gas which sucks ass for performance. As for my driving I do mostly city driving. I dont floor it when I start off, I keep it about 10mph over the speed limit so I wont get a ticket and even on the highway I keep it about 15 over the limit. I'm just going to wait until spring to see if it improves.
Don't count on the weather, check the tread depth of the rear tires insteadspeed_demon_freak said:This is my 4th fill up of gas. I put on 187.37 miles and put 13.476 gallons in the tank. Thats 13.90 MPG. I guess it was a fluke that I once got 18.5 MPG. I hope that will all change with the weather (once it warms up).
Yes, just don't reset the computer when you fill up...it continues to roll on and on.I Got1 said:can the trip computers on the 2005 GTO be "personalized" so that average MPG calculations are maintained as a moving average over a number of gasoline fill ups?
I have been getting about 14mpg driving to work and back with average MPH at 30, and I got almost a 400 mile range with a fillup of 17gallons on the way to Maryland and back.swmn said:I have to think and work my M6 around town to break 14 mpg. If I "just drive it" I get more like 12 mpg city, 20-24 highway.
34k miles, I had one sheriff's deputy pull up beside me to tell me he loved the exhaust note, no other LEO attention.
