Haha...I'm getting 10mpg and I'm completely stock with the 5.2L. Believe I have some leaking injectors.

Mine by hand is 10-11. The overhead has a sense of humor.

My overhead's telling me I'm getting 17.2 at the moment. So really, about 15. Which is still damn good for the driving I've been doing, especially in a cammed niner.

You must spend some time on the highway. I need to fix my plenum. Hopefully that helps.

Mine says 12.9, no matter how I drive. I probably average about 11 or so.

11.7 steady. I try to be easy on the skiny pedal.....but it runs sooooo much better around 3k rpm!

That actually matches my hand calculation too.

I average about 12-13 (depending on how lead footed I am) mine actually reads pretty true according to hand calc's.

During the summer an average work week i run about 14mpg. But its 75% hwy with 2 stops. I drop to 11 in the winter due too the 30min warm up to make sure trans shifts proper. I also found according to the overhead my best mpg is around 50mph. Stock everything.

With 80% highway driving I get 17-18 but I'll get 20-22 if it's pure highway with my 5.2. Maybe I'm lucky...

I have noticed that around 55 I get my best mileage. I am stock except for a k&n cai, 3" lift and 31" bfgs. Has anyone noticed better fuel economy when using higher quality gas ie shell over something like 76. I live in Las Vegas and I can not find an ethanol free station here.
