Tonight I filled up my tank which i have been calculating for a while and have consistently been getting 21 mpg around town with cai etc, and I took a run down to norfolk and got a very very nice surprise. 28 mpg on the dot. I went 400 miles exact on the odomotor/trip when i fueled up. This car is very nice and should never be looked down upon. only haters hate about the best bang for your buck. <3 mitsubishi

I still can't understand how you guys are getting 400+ :runaway: I'm usually in the 300 range and that's with normal driving!!

When I was 100% stock w/ a drop-in k&n filter, I got about 31mpg going from wichita falls, tx to phoenix, az which is about 1000 miles...i was definitely happy about that

Thats highway strictly. Were talking avg. ;)

Oh my bad lol I still think 31 highway is pretty good since the gt is only rated at 28 highway...

Yeah it is! I never thought our cars would get 30. I'd probably get 28. Just because i'd race some suckas. ;P

I think the GT is only rated at 25 for highway.

I have only gotten 400 miles on one tank once before. But I don't do a lot of highway driving so my usual is about 320 per tank.
