I think I can go about 200 miles on a tank of gas. I do run a supercharger, so that takes off a bit of range. It's been a long time since I took the car on a long road trip though.

I have been averaging about 20 MPG with totally stock drive train. That does drop off when you get on it, Guaranteed.

I average 21 mpg in my daily driver 5.0 Mustang. It has a stock motor, T5, 3.73s, and weighs about 1000 lbs more than a roadster. I have gotten as high as 24 mpg on the highway. I regularly get 300 miles to a tank while commuting, but that is driving very conservatively.

Put over 500 highway miles on last weekend. Not quite a stock 302, aluminum heads explorer intake etc. Just about exactly 24mpg. Very happy. In town it's less obviously.

This was great because it proved the hp upgrades didn't really hurt me on the highway at all.
