DEARBORN, Michigan The redesigned 2015 Ford Mustang may be thirstier than the outgoing model, according to window stickers leaked on the Internet.

The leaked stickers show the 2015 Mustang V6 model with the automatic transmission returning 19 mpg in city driving and 28 mpg on the highway, compared to 19 mpg in city driving and 31 mpg on the highway for the comparable 2014 model.

In comparison, the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro, a key Mustang rival, returns 19 mpg in city driving and 30 mpg on the highway when equipped with a V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission, the EPA said.

The leaked stickers show the new 2015 2.3-liter four-cylinder Mustang EcoBoost with a manual transmission rated at 22 in the city and 31 on the highway.

"We're not going to talk about fuel economy until the EPA releases their figures," said Brian Cotter, a Ford spokesman, in a phone conversation with Edmunds on Friday.

Cotter would not provide estimated fuel economy numbers on the 2015 Mustang. He said the automaker expected that official numbers will be released closer to the car's launch in the "next couple of months."

The EPA's fuel economy site has not posted 2015 Ford Mustang fuel economy numbers.

The Mustang's curb weight has increased on four of the six models.

Gasoline prices in the U.S. have remained relatively stable in the last year. The AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report on Friday pegged the average price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline at $3.43 versus $3.53 a year ago.

Edmunds says: Consumers will have to wait until the EPA releases official fuel economy numbers on the 2015 Mustang, since Ford will not confirm the authenticity of the leaked stickers.
