2006 Ford Mustang Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 2dr Coupe 300-horsepower 4.6L V8
5-speed manual RWD
Surprisingly, the V8 gets about 23-25 MPG highway driving IF you behave; better than my SUV. The Stang is my choice for my frequent 800+ miles trips once or twice per month. see full Ford Mustang review
2005 2dr Convertible 300-horsepower 4.6L V8
5-speed automatic RWD
If you drive it responsably, I easily get 22 mpg around town. At 65 mph I get 28 on the highway. see full Ford Mustang review
2005 2dr Coupe 210-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic RWD
Not bad at all for a sports car with a big six cyl. see full Ford Mustang review

I checked mileage carefully, hoping it was possible to get better than 18-20 m.p.g.- not likey in everyday driving. see full Ford Mustang review
