Ironhide,
Another newbie here. So far (after only about 3k km driven on the car) my average is about 14-15 city and about 11-12 hwy depending on how aggressive I'm driving. If I'm trying, I can get the hwy down to 10-11. A small tank, v8, 6 sp manual, and a heavy Rt foot, only usually allow me to get about 400 km/tankful (city/hwy). It's just so much fun to wind it out and row those gears. It's still better than what I thought I'd be getting...

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply, misspent youth.

Anythings helps at this moment. Iíve budgeted for $150 a week on fuel. Some of the guys I know are telling me different numbers but they donít own a gt. I hear 300km on a full tank. I hear 250km. I would hate to have to spend $200 a week on fuel to enjoy the car.

I'm happy to help out. I may not be the best yardstick though. I only drive the car in decent weather, so generally one tank every 3-4 weeks. It's also winter stored. The other cars we have get the bulk of the mileage. I filled up the Mustang yesterday - Shell 91 - about 48 litres, $1.39/Lt., so around $67.00 BC gas is more expensive than here in Ontario I think.

I think $150 a week for fuel is pretty generous, thats an F150 budget. I get 300 to 400 km per tank with my GT350, fill it with 93 octane, and only drop $75 or so per week.

But, like anything else, your mileage may vary, depends how many km per week you run, city or highway, and how consistently hard you hit the pedal.

I get 500 or more per tank and I'm pretty sure the 5.0, should be better than the 4.6.
