Drove mine to work and filled up with 93 this morning. Going to track mileage now that I have a working speedo/odo and see what I'm getting. Any bets? For reference, car is a manual/stock 5.0 with 3.73 gears. My guess is 14mpg. Mix of highway/city.

Depends where you are driving. I have 3.73s and got 18 mpg on my last tank. Anywhere from 13-20 would not surprise me.

Began race prepping by switching the rolling stock to the kill setup.

Also, determined the PS fluid was low after some undesirable steering antics on the way home from work. Presented itself as a jerky/vibrating steering wheel with heavy input. Spot balled possibilities with William on the remainder of the trip. Checked the suspension while swapping tires and discovered the reservoir was low. There are no leaks so best I can tell the system self-bled trapped air.

My commute is mostly highway at 70+ with very little "in town" driving, so I'm turning 2000-2500RPM most of the time lol. I figure the lower end of the range is where I'll fall, but I might be surprised!

My last tank was about the same and I got 18mpg but I have a 26.7" tire so I would bet you're not far off. 16-17 sounds right.
