New to the site

I had several old cars. I sold them all and bought this. The only options were the 20ís and navigation. This will sound strange but the gas mileage is phenomenal.

Welcome and beautiful ride. I love the Royal Crimson! The 20s aren't bad for stock wheels either!

Car looks very nice. Cameras like that color. My eye likes that shape.

When you say "phenomenal", what range of phenomena are we talking?

My GT/PP/10A tells me it is doing 22.2 mpg, mostly city. I think that is edging toward the "phenomenal" threshold.

Im my first 2300 miles it has averaged over 26 and pushes 30 on the interstate. It takes so little throttle to move the car it just sips fuel.

22.5 for city driving is excellent. I did a 2 hour journey with a mix or roads and returned 32mpg. It was mostly highway.

Nice ride, but if you are getting that kind of mileage you must not be driving it right.

Haha. Iím still breaking it in but I have had a lot of fun with it. It didnít even see full throttle until right before the 1000 mile oil change. Iíll open it all the way up again right at 3000 miles and then Iíll change the oil and itíll be good to go. I plan to pass this car to my kids so I want to make sure it lasts forever. And they will if treated properly.

It's a beauty for sure, and I was surprised with the mpg's also. Better than any other GT I've had.

Welcome to the forum, and congratulations on the new GT.

I get 10 MPG in the city and 36 MPG highway in my 2005 GT. Every green light is a chance to let everyone hear my SLP Loudmouth 2 exhaust.....

I love the color, but I think I may be a little bias.
