Why would you buy a GT500 or something similar and worry about gas mileage
You don’t to answer your question but you can certainly make comments about it but don’t bitch. You know what you are getting.

I'm mostly Highway miles. I'm at 17 mpg average. Which I think is not great. So I'm my tune I turned stoich to 14.5 instead of 14.0 afr. It seemed to gain. 1 mpg but I haven't driven the car in 3 weeks. About to pull the whole rear suspension apart too.
I got 21.5 the day I bought her. I had a 3 hour drive home all on back country roads and didn’t get over 55mph

That's pretty good. Probably in the rpm/gearing sweet spit. The rolling resistance is very noticeable to me in this car vs an normal gt. You can feel the huge brakes and wheels vs a normal car. I'm sure it accounts for a few mpg in itself. It still gets better gas mileage than my old charger widebody 392 tho lol.

It’s confidential and it appears you will be on the outside looking in.
You don't know jack shit. Do you even have a 500? Or are you just a poser?

I wish we got 8 mpg on track. More like 3 at best. Largest isssue with this car is you can only get one 20minute session out of a tank of gas. Gets a bit annoying…but otherwise absolutely fantastic car…will always have one in garage.. 👊🏻👊🏻

I can't finish a session without running out of gas. Its embarrassing

Just did a 320 mile road trip today...22.5 MPG including non-highway portions, both directons in normal mode, 7th gear, cruise control for the whole trip with a few small pulls to pass. Rolling hills, lots of flat. No wind. Less than one tank. Blew my mind. MPG has been getting better over time. I love the car even more now.
