What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2008 Ford Mustang

2008 Ford Mustang Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2009 2dr Coupe 300-horsepower 4.6L V8
5-speed manual RWD
For a 4.6L V8 using 87 octane, 20 city and 28 hwy is not bad. see full Ford Mustang review
2008 2dr Coupe 300-horsepower 4.6L V8
5-speed manual RWD
For a V8, I still get great fuel economy. I average 21mpg with combined city & highway, about 75% city. Only long highway trips, I average 27mpg at 70mph. see full Ford Mustang review
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
2008 Ford Mustang Real Gas Mileage: Cons

2009 2dr Coupe 300-horsepower 4.6L V8
5-speed manual RWD
The GT/CS is surprisingly economical; GT500 is a profligate gas gobbler - but who really cares? see full Ford Mustang review
2008 2dr Coupe supercharged 500hp 5.4L V8
6-speed manual RWD
12 mpg city is poor, hi way mpg of 22 is not too bad see full Ford Mustang review
2008 2dr Convertible supercharged 500hp 5.4L V8
6-speed manual RWD
Premium fuel is expensive and mileage with a blown 5.4 is not stellar. I would not recommend this as a daily driver but it makes a hell of weekend and evening toy. see full Ford Mustang review
2007 2dr Coupe 210-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed manual RWD
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
