2015 Ford Mustang GT: Fuel Economy Update for January
February 5, 2015
In the past month, our 2015 Ford Mustang GT's fuel economy went up by more than 2 mpg! Unfortunately, it's still pretty abysmal.
We brought the Mustang up to 14.5 mpg with a best of 22.8 mpg and a best range of only 264.9 miles. Apparently, driving it in L.A. traffic and on roads like those above is not great for fuel economy. Clearly road trips must be taken to give the Mustang a fighting chance of achieving at least EPA city.
For comparison sake, our old 2011 Mustang GT managed 16.4 mpg over the course of its 23,955 miles in our lead-footed care. Curiously, that car actually got better EPA estimates than the 2015 does, so I wouldn't hold out hope for us to do any better with the new version.
