The 698 was a HP390, and got abou 9mph. I oped for the 6 because it has all the power I need and gets real world fuel economy equal to my Escapes. I consistantly get 23 plus in mixed driving see full Ford Mustang review
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

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

The GT/CS is surprisingly economical; GT500 is a profligate gas gobbler - but who really cares? 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
