2015 Ford Mustang GT: Fuel Economy Update for January - Ready to Say Goodbye
by Mark Takahashi, Automotive Editor on February 9, 2016
Time is winding down for our long-term 2015 Ford Mustang GT, signaling my long slide into depression. It'll be leaving just as things were getting fun with the suspension and exhaust upgrades.
Since the last update two months ago, we've logged another 3,000 miles, but it had no affect on the results. I had bets on the lifetime average taking a nosedive because of the performance upgrades and the way they encourage more spirited driving.
Besides the usual commute duties, the Mustang hasn't seen any big trips. I drove it a few hundred miles back and forth to Palm Springs, but a long stretch of bumper-to-bumper traffic kept me from getting anything better than average fuel economy results.
Thanks for the memories, Mustang, I'm sure we'll meet again.
