2015 Ford Mustang GT: Fuel Economy Update for May — Overall MPG Improves and the New Guys Weigh In

June 9, 2015

2015 Ford Mustang GT

We put 1,371 miles on our 2015 Ford Mustang GT in May, using 84.7 gallons of 91-octane fuel and averaging 16.2 mpg for the month. This bumped the car's lifetime average from 15.3 mpg up to 15.5 mpg.

Our worst fill-up for the month was 14.0 mpg and our best was 20.5 (that's still less than our best-ever of 22.8 mpg, though).

A couple of our new staffers were eager to get into the Mustang GT. Josh Sadlier's first impression was that the car drives big, yet in the end he was still won over by the charm of the 5.0-liter V8 and manual gearbox.

Fellow new guy Carlos Lago was mesmerized by the Mustang's pretty interior lights and the side-view mirrors that beam horsey images onto the ground.

I spent some time in the Mustang this month, too, including an early morning strafing run up one of my favorite mountain roads. I came away impressed with its dynamic abilities, but more on that in a later post.

Worst Fill MPG: 9.5
Best Fill MPG: 22.8
Average Lifetime MPG: 15.5
EPA MPG Rating: 19 Combined (15 City / 25 Highway)
Best Range: 263.9 miles
Current Odometer: 7,339 miles
