2015 Ford Mustang GT: Fuel Economy Update for August - Staying Thirsty

By Josh Sadlier, Senior Editor on September 14, 2015

2015 Ford Mustang GT

August added another 1,248 miles to our 2015 Ford Mustang GT's tally, and we pumped in 81.6 gallons of gas along the way. The math says that's 15.3 mpg for the month. Our lifetime average has dropped by another tenth, now sitting at an even 16.0 mpg.

Our thirstiest August tank came out to an epic 10.2 mpg, just 0.7 mpg clear of the all-time low. The Larry Lightfoot award goes to Editor Monticello, who threw down a 21.6-mpg tank and set a new range record of 321.6 miles while he was at it.

The Mustang's miles this month were relatively uneventful. We took it in for its first service, panned the tiny side mirrors and ruminated on the wheels and the Recaros (which really are fantastic, by the way; don't let anyone tell you otherwise).

Oh, and we finally put a decent exhaust on it. Sounds pretty mean at high rpm. I predict it will not inspire us to use less fuel.

Worst Fill MPG: 9.5 
Best Fill MPG: 23.5 
Average Lifetime MPG: 16.0 
EPA MPG Rating: 19 Combined (15 City/25 Highway) 
Best Range: 321.6 miles 
Current Odometer: 13,696 miles
