I know this really isn't concern when you get into this type of vehicle...
but what are people averaging for gas mileage?
Anything better than 12 mpg?

and...
do you fill it it with premium just because it RECOMMENDS it?

let me know what you think:thumbsup:

I usually use plus (and it runs fine), but with the gas prices down I've been using premium. When I take long trips I use regular to save money. I'm not running it hard when I'm on the open road and the engine doesn't seem to mind. Overall I get about 14 or so, and have had as good as 17.1 on trips.

Long Distance driver

Since i drive LONG Distances...Toronto, Detroit, West Palm Beach, Atlanta, I averaged last year over 13mpg.

Around town, where I live, i am getting sometimes less than 10, but around 11. On a recent trip to Detroit this holiday season, I got as high as 17mpg. And, this is ONLY using Super Unleaded.

I noticed initially when I bought my SS, it was sluggish and acceleration was a little lackluster. Mybe it's just perception, but after I began using exclusively 93 octane everything improved.:dielaugh:

10.9 in the city - Stop and Go all the time

17.1 Highway

MY Drivers Info Center says 11.5 combined and I sometimes do get on it..

Granted I have a Tune, Intake, and Exhuast.
